After NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity finishes examining its heat shield, the rover team plans to direct Opportunity southward toward a round feature dubbed "Vostok," about 1.2 kilometers (three-fourths of a mile) away. The plan is to check out small craters along the way.

This image is from the Mars Orbiter Camera aboard NASA's Mars Global Surveyor. North is up, and the big circle at the top is "Endurance Crater."
