I find it interesting ATS that this cloud structure in question is being related to a dust cloud from meteor impact
a massive storm system or just a trick of light. It will be nice to see if ANY of the NASA influenced members can better explain. With that can any share any data on what could of caused this phenomena? Thanks in advance

Astrophotographer Wayne Jaeschke reports on his website of a "strange feature" over the Martian plain called Acidalia that moves with the planet and seems to rise over the limb.

Whatever it is — or was — the feature is diminishing in size.

"This has led some to believe that it was some sort of transient-type event," Jaeschke told MSNBC.

The list of culprits includes a dust cloud from a meteorite impact, a massive storm system or just a trick of light

Hi there. Great thread. As you pointed out though, it is a duplicate so we can continue the discussion over there.

Happy future postings. Thread closed.
