Looks like a recent impact crater to me with the ejecta or outcropping hat shows as a darker material. Just an opinion.

Well, I was going to say crater, then i got to your other pictures, and the animation. I wonder if it could be an image artifact? The antenna looking thing is very peculiar though. I guess my curiosity is a little piqued... I am undecided, and will wait... Sorry I can't offer an opinion either way, but interesting indeed.

And yes, impact craters, many of them, have "domes" in the middle of them. You can do a simple google search to see as many pictures as you want, as well as a valid scientific reason why and how they occur.
So yeah, you’re looking at an impact crater while having an over active amount of imagination combined with a desire to believe in the least likely scenario. Also, scientific ignorance concerning impact craters has left a void that you choose to fill with conspiracy and whatever else can think of.
Here ya go, simple to understand page describing impact craters. About 3/4 of the way down they go over craters with buldges in the middle: Simple Crater page

And while you are at it turn it upside down.
Dig a bit deeper my friend there's lots to find and see.
Any of you remember those pictures that trick your mind? That's a clue.
When you do though your thread will be trashed, I guarantee that.
Mark my words on the following ok?
There is life on mars
There is water on mars
There are trees on mars
There are buildings on mars.
Look up golfball on mars and flip the image upside down. I would go as far as saying we are either on mars or have been.
Slate me later. I'm right. Remember where you read this because all will be coming to public knowledge.
