MARS 71 49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W - Cylinder Structure? Updated puzzles.

My all-time favorite MARS thingy.
Located at 71 49’19.73″N 29 33’06.53″W  (Use Google Mars )
Noticed by David Martines. "Over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide. It looks like it's a cylinder or made up of cylinders"
(h/t Hot Air)

And an embedded Martines video zooming into Google Mars.

ADDED April 8 2014   Last week the Mars rover, Curiosity, photographed an artificial light nearby.  Or is it a transmission glitch?  

Added:  See holes in the moon the size of football fields. The temperature at the bottom of the holes is steady and survivable at about 40 below. It's a good place for people to start a colony.

Added:  Why hasn't NASA released more information?  The golf-cart-sized Mars Rover recently reached the edge of Santa Maria Crater and took the first picture below while a satellite overhead took the second one in which the Rover is seen.  If NASA can see our little ATV, they can give more detail on the Cylinder Structure.  (Assuming a satellite can be tasked to that area.)

Rover photographed from Space at same time.

Mars Daily is a good source of new stories and photos.
Added: Another oddity:  Giant dust cloud appeared on Mars. What crashed?

Added:  Did you know that it snowed so hard that the solar panels on the Phoenix lander snapped off?  There's no sign of liquid water but the ski-able kind is there.  Earth winters can get past 50C below but the Martian one runs to -100C.  Story from the BBC.

Added:  February 2013 a wind-sculpted bit of rock sticks up, looks like it has metal buttons.
Added January 2014.  What's this?  Overnight a hollowed-out rock appeared beside the Mars Rover.
The article speculates that the Rover flipped it there from a wheel or a meteorite scrap landed.  Sort of like a doughnut out of nowhere.  What the heck happened?  Why would they mention something as rare as a meteorite fragment in the same breath as something the tire threw up?  Because they really don't believe a tire could have done that.
