How do you arrive at that conclusion?

Satellite images are taken at different times of the year.  You can see different buildings being up etc and the thing hasn't moved even though there is clearly air traffic coming in and out of that airport.

And, although it isn't 100% clear, the google image map shows shadows on the plane to the north of the object and on the plane to the west of the object (that is about to take off).  This object does not cast any shadows and its as wide as the utility road.

It could just be a artifact or photoshop job.

Follow the link to the 'dropbox' image in the comments below the article - it's very obviously some form of target or reference pattern on the runway.

As for Tracey Parece's determination that it looked like 'lights'..  She did spot that it was a daylight photo, did she?
Sigh - I saw nothing whatsoever in her article to suggest she spent even a moment considering what it *might* actually be.  A helicopter??  Save me..

Its likely some kind of reference or targeting point painted on the taxiway with reflective paint, that would explain why it looks like its lit up. Plus its pretty well centered on the taxiway, its highly unlikely that an object passing over the airport would have been caught centered on taxiway so well.
