Doesn't look like one to me. It is an interesting object and I've downloaded the NAC image to have a closer look.

Nice find placidstorm!

I spent some time trying to find the coordinates of this area (the ACT-REACT link takes ages to load for me) and it's Latitude=17.48 and Longitude=87.70

Can you post the coordinates or a NAC link for people who can't use ACT-REACT  :(
