The lander is oriented northwest and the rover drove off in that direction. Its tracks are clearly visible. Several maneuvers were made around the lander to examine the local terrain and photograph the lander. View toward the south from the landing site showing the highlands along the southern margin of Le Monnier Crater. Credit: Roskosmos & Russian Academy of Sciences, via V.I.
