Certainly looks like another example of the stuff to me.

Also interesting, from Google Sightseeing, is the following quote about the tape instances:
they are all roughly the same angle because they are perpendicular to the orbit of the Landsat satellite, which have an inclination of around 98 degrees. Landsat has a mirror that sweeps from side to side to image the ground under the orbit. The data from one or more of these swaths was obviously corrupted in these images, perhaps the swath wasn’t received properly at the ground station.
