No, but scanning the imagery of the surrounding area, there appears to be a few more similar areas with faint, rough grid shaped patterns. Most of them are light and look to be fairly old. Maybe somthing to do with military exercises back during WWII?

Yes, I see more in the area as well. Looks like the discoloration is from vegetation disturbance, but that is not recent work - there's trees growing in some of those circular areas.

Could they be drilling grids like what's seen near Ryan?
