My money is impact crater, just happens to be a hole or cave underneath. Which oculd have even been created by the thing that made the impact. (Meteor, space debri etc)
  Wow, you haven't been digging for gold, or maybe a goldfish Pond ? Seriously I hope no one got injured.

Being on the side of a volcano, could it not just be a magma cavern that's caved in over time?

Haven't we learned enough from the b rated movies that we have no business spelunking alien caverns?

Don't take away all the fun... everyone likes to hear about an astronaut getting their head bit off by an alien. :alien:

Odd there is no debris on the floor, since you have a funnel shaped pit on a planet with dust storms. Perhaps swept away by wind or water coursing through tunnels?

Amazing!   it does look like a sinkhole, maybe,  but why isn't there a pile of .. sand?  directly underneath the opening?
Where did the sand go that must have slid down?   It looks Empty inside!!   It does look sort of like an impact crater..  the Hollowness is the astounding part!
My guess is that the crater is not really too deep, and that most of the hole was actually tossed out when something hit here. Debris in the cave hole being gone, I'd vote for it being moved around by wind and pushed downhill out of sight of the pic. Probably down a lava tube of some kind.

At first I was leaning toward it being a sink hole. But looking at the pic again, there does appear to be a faint ridge around the crater. So I'm voting impact crater too.

Edit: I thought the dirt on Mars was Red??

Not sure about this particular location as to whether or not it should be "red", but NASA imaging often uses "false colors" to enhance detail.

Not sure there is much of a story here, but if they explore it and find something then I'll gladly eat my words!

Ya, there is a faint ridge around the 'crater' .  If it's an impact crater it's surface debris was buried with wind blown sand?
... because there is no trace of outward streaks or even chunks!  ...  the thing is mysterious!

  What cyanneyed said makes sense: " Being on the side of a volcano, could it not just be a magma cavern that's caved in over time?"

     Mar's Victoria Crater  Attached File  Victoria-red-annot.thumb.jpg   148.81K   7 downloads

http://www.google.co...tbm=isch&itbs=1


This HiRISE image shows "Victoria Crater," an impact crater at Meridiani Planum, near the equator of Mars. The crater is approximately 800 meters (about half a mile) in diameter. It has a distinctive "scalloped" shape to its rim, caused by erosion and downhill movement of crater wall material. Layered sedimentary rocks are exposed along the inner wall of the crater, and boulders that have fallen from the crater wall are visible on the crater floor. The floor of the crater is occupied by a striking field of sand dunes.
Since January, 2004, the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has been operating at Meridiani Planum. Five days before this image was taken, Opportunity arrived at the rim of Victoria Crater, after a drive of more than 9 km (over 5 miles). The rover can be seen in this image, at roughly the "ten o'clock" position along the rim of the crater.

Is it really that hard to believe? When we still have people debating that we have holes in the north and south poles leading into our earth? I personally believe it but thats from a bias of information ive researched.

This doesn't look like a sink hole or an impact crater to me because it's clearly raised far above the surface, kind of like a pimple.  There also appears to be a curve to the tunnel, like if one were to fly down the 90 degree opening it would eventually turn into a 120 degree turn.  There is a brightness inside the black half moon of the shadow, as if it is being illuminated from inside.  If this is all ice maybe it could happen but I am currently rethinking the inner core world theory.  Crazy?  Might be, but someone has to be "crazy" so that the self righteous & the closed minded have something to complain about...  Hehe

Yeah, there is ice in the North and South.... (a lot of people fial to mention this, I was kinda shocked when I found out)

Ther eis more google images of Mars that shows there is more than that as well.
