With its thin atmosphere and scant moisture, Mars is often largely cloud-free. But new observations reveal clouds of dry ice thick enough to cast significant shadows on the red planet. Carbon Dioxide (C02)

My money is on a dust storm.
Dust storms are known to shroud vast areas of Mars.

How about sending the rover to have a look ?
( frutty that was a joke, so chill before you dont post )


Hi cwmman, I worked this out from the photo at io9.com
It is a blurred photo to start with but I gave it a try anyways.

At the base I measure around 395KM or 245 miles and it goes up 350km or 217 miles.
So it is pretty big, Mars is reported at 6,792km in diameter.
Deuem :cheers:
