Spirit's got a clear path to Von Braun

...or at least Spirit has a clear sight line to Von Braun, and the latest views from the Pancam are pretty awesome. Sadly there's no color data for this view. Von Braun is the pointy bit to the left side of this three-image mosaic. Goddard is the darker slab that tilts off to the left of Von Braun.

As of sol 1,869, Spirit had rounded the northwest corner of Home Plate and had a good view of the path forward to Von Braun, the peak to the left of this mosaic of three Pancam images.
