Curiosity Rover's Location for Sol 2256

This map shows the route driven by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity through the 2256 Martian day, or sol, of the rover's mission on Mars (December 11, 2018).

Numbering of the dots along the line indicate the sol number of each drive. North is up. From Sol 2255 to Sol 2256, Curiosity had driven a straight line distance of about 29.78 feet (9.08 meters). Since touching down in Bradbury Landing in August 2012, Curiosity has driven 12.35 miles (19.88 kilometers).

The base image from the map is from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment Camera (HiRISE) in NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
