Just looks like a radar test site, see the big pole in the south west end of the close runway? Nothing is flying out of that runway.
By the way the address is 17900 Bee Line Hwy, Jupiter, FL 33478.

Yes radar test site. It's for testing the F35 exhaust RCS.

Actually none of those fit, but neither does an X-47B with wings folded, since at the 'fold' there is a point, whereas it should be straight.
