In August 2001, ETs supposedly created large images in the fields next to the Chilbolton radio telescope. For more info, just watch the YouTube video attached to the placemark.
For more real information, careful use of the internet may give you the real answer. YouTube can be very useful and helpful but it also produces lots of imaginative but faulty content. UFO content is especially fanciful.
There is no longer an airfield there, but during WW II many airfields were built to accommodate many British and U. S. military air units, and the pattern on the land created by their runways is often visible long after the aircraft and tarmac are gone. A quick search of WW2 airfield Chilbolton retrieves THIS ARTICLE from Wikipedia.
From the article:
Royal Air Force Station Chilbolton or RAF Chilbolton is a former Royal Air Force station in Hampshire, England. The airfield is located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) south-southeast of Andover; about 62 miles (100 km) southwest of London
Opened in 1940, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and then later by the United States Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a troop carrier airfield for parachutists. After the war it was used for jet aircraft testing before being closed in 1946.
Today the remains of the airfield are located on private property being used as agricultural fields.
Two images attached to the article show the figure-8 type patterns. The oblique one shows them a bit better. They are parking areas for mostly tow-planes and troop gliders for the invasion of Europe.
Note: I have tried repeatedly to attach and size the images to this post and to an overlay, but my image-hosting service will have none of it, so you'll have to find and examine the images from the article on your own. If I figure out the problem I'll add them to the post. For now click the images to enlarge them to a more useful size.

An oblique view which shows the airbase features a bit more clearly.

I NEVER said I believed the Youtube video or anything associated with the "Arecibo Reply" was true. That is why I used the term "supposedly" and put "Reply" in quotations marks. I am sure the crop images were of human origins.
syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.

SpiderX22: In regards to this error - on my forum posts/threads -> I can start compiling attached files into one kml collection to slim down attachment numbers

SpiderX22: Anyone else notice that new Google Earth imagery doesn't have a date anymore?
