I took a walk in No Man's Sky in order to find Copper. I walked 5 minutes in any direction. Now I got lost and dont know in which direction I must go.

In order to find previously visited place you have to place some kind of marker on it. Marker could be starship, other vehicles, registered base, save beacon, save beacon on NPC bases. Or the analysis visor shows you coordinates on the right side. (Btw. I lost some NPC's before I learnt how to use Save Beacon, it sadly happens.)
Now I got lost and dont know in which direction I must go.
In the immortal words of the chesire cat, "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
If you already have a base, there's dome shaped marker on your HUD. Your ship will also have a marker. If you don't want to walk back, just craft a new portable refiner and base computer where you are, and viola, you're home (technically)!
