Mountain tops can do some funky stuff to clouds. Here's one taken by Salyut-1 in the 70s over the Canary Islands:

Could it possibly be from a meteor?

The data recorded on the Gateway to Astronaut Photograpy of Earth site

eol.jsc.nasa.gov...

give the location of the point immediately below the ISS as 51.7°S, 8.0° W

This is nowhere near the Antarctic so it isn't ice. I suspect that the land mass causing the disturbance is South Georgia or one of the Sandwich Islands.

edit: the Meteosat image I posted was incorrect, the search page had reset the date without me realisng!

My edit was to remove a Meteosat image I'd posted but it was from the wrong date. The coordinates given are for the point immediately below the ISS at the time of the image, and as the Antarctic circle is 15 degrees further south of that point we can be pretty certain it is not showing any form of sea ice. I'd put my money firmly on an island wake.

Looks like cloud wakes.

Here is a view of cloud wakes during 2004 - South Sandwich Islands


In the Southern Atlantic, a chain of eleven volcanic islands rises up from the ocean in an arc that extends roughly 240 miles (400 km) north to south. As is apparent in this true-color image, the islands are tall enough to disrupt the cloud patterns forming and flowing around them.

Is it clouds or snow?

Let it go. Let it go.

It's low level cloud, you can see the land mass below it when you zoom in:



My money's on Bouvet island, which at 54°25'18.70"S 3°21'33.67"E is probaby the nearest solitary island to the ISS at the time.

eta: It's also worth reminding people what time of year it is in the southern hemisphere.

I am seeing that one small puffy cloud to the left of the anonomaly actually projecting its shadow upon the ground at an angle. My guess is that it is snow.

Maybe it's a holy moley.
Looks like wind drifting past a rock, or crashed spaceship.

High winds up on a tall mountain like that is brutal. It looks like a peak of a rock with the tip just enough to cut the clouds to make it ripple like that. At first it was hard to determine what was the ripples made of as the clouds was so smooth and uniform and one higher clouds casting a shadow down on the lower uniform clouds giving the effect that you're looking at a snowy flat ground surface. Zooming in it becomes more apparent it's all clouds blowing over a peak of something.
