Milk Hill ‘Galaxy’ Recreated

Snow artist Simon Beck has recreated the famed Milk Hill August 2001 ‘galaxy’ formation in sand. As near as we can tell it’s full-size, too. Okay, so it’s not quite the wheat extravaganza those folks at the Crop Circle Challenge are expecting, but we still consider it an impressive feat, especially for one guy working on his own (!). This formation has been recreated twice in sand before – by croppies Jo and Troy Byrne on a beach at Gerroa, Australia (midle photo) and by unknown artists in the UK (bottom photo).
