    Question What is this? ~1 mile Diameter circle - France

    Hi - I'm new here, what an interesting site, hope that somebody can help me with this one - It appears to be some kind of circular concrete construction, but its nearly a mile in diameter! Haven't read how to make the links yet, it's here - 47 29' 10.79" N 0 27' 40.07" E

    Hi Kahuczek.

    Welcome to our community.

    What you have found looks like a bombing target and it's not in the directory.

    Here is a link showing how to make one and this one should be your first.

    Bombing target! He,He, what are you on?

    Well it's nothing as sinister as that -

    I have viewed the same location on multimap, this time it's a green circle, Hmm, what I thought was concrete, must be pale coloured soil, it also has a name - Bois de la Motte

    It's a round field, one of the mechanically irrigated types, not very exiting really.

    First of all. Here in this forum we talk nice to every one. No one comes with statements like yours. If you continue you could be banned from GEH.

    Secondly, if you zoom in it really looks like other bombing targets found in Nevada USA or other places. Not like irrigation fields like some do think.

    Third. I have also looked in other maps and it says Bois de la Motte. If you look around it, it looks like a military training area. Unfortunately not in very Hi res.

    So for the next message from you. Think carefully what you write.

    I have at looked the site in detail, it looks nothing like a military training area to me, the fact that I viewed it on multimap and it was green suggests vegetation, within the surrounding area there is much Pine forestry, hence someplaces being called 'les Pins', my guess is that it is a nursery area for bringing on saplings or something similar.
