Chang'e 3 and Yutu on the Moon on their third lunar day
A photo from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter shows the Chang'e 3 lander and its little Yutu rover on the Moon on their third lunar day, February 17, 2014. On the first and second days, the rover had circled the lander, driven south, and then returned toward the lander. The rover did not move during the third lunar day.

Here is an annotated and enlarged version.
