    You inspired me to send a mail to the chappies on that project, and they were decent enough to send back the following response:

    Wow - I don't know what that is. It doesn't fit the general profile of a missing swath of satellite data or anything else I can think of. So, it must be either a coincidence or an unreported strike by a meteor that melted much of the snow. :-)

    I'll keep an eye on it for tomorrow, if it's still there, I'll look into it in the original data.

    Thanks for writing and for your interest.

    If it is near Surgut that's an oil and gas production area. They flare off a lot of "waste" gas. If the area wasn't so neatly circular I'd speculate that it could be a heat signature from gas flares.

    (I spent a year in the area one week. As a place to be it sucks.)

    Edit: It's changed shape. The image with time stamp 2.42 CST shows it triangular, where it was previously circular. I wonder if there's been another gas pipeline explosion.

    The shape of the anomaly is different, now. Hmmmm.

    If you look at the Dec 10 image on that website, the round anomaly is there again, but in a slightly different place. On Dec 11 it's gone. I would assume it's some sort of imaging effect rather than anything major happening on the ground. It'll be interesting to see if FR's inquiry produces an explanation.

    Im not too sure what could cause such an anomoly.
    I have a couple of questions about it though.
    first off, where is tunguska in relation to the hole ?
    Secondly what type of device is used for imaging ?
    Couldnt space debris be a possible cause ?
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.
