Reconstruction of the
2001 Milk Hill formation

1. Draw a circle and its horizontal and vertical centerlines.

2. Construct a nonagon (a regular 9-sided polygon), pointing upwards. (Note, that this can not be done by strict ruler-and-compass construction rule).

3. Draw the diagonals of the nonagon to every second angular point, yielding a 9-pointed star with obtuse angles.

4. Draw the rays from the center to all angular points of the nonagon.

5. Construct the sharp-angled 9-pointed star, by connecting every fourth intersection of the rays with diagonals 3.

6. Repeat this for every second intersection, producing a 9-pointed star similar to 3.

7. From the top of star 6, connect the first and the third intersection of sides at both sides, and extend the lines until they meet near the top of the pattern.

8. Construct a circle concentric with circle 1, passing through the intersection of lines 7.

9. Construct the circumscribed nonagon of circle 8, pointing downwards.

10. Construct again an obtuse angled 9-pointed star similar to 3, by connecting every second angular point of nonagon 9.

11. Construct a circle passing through the intersections of the sides of star 10.

12. Construct the circumscribed nonagon of circle 11.

13. In turn, construct the circumscribed circle of nonagon 12.

14. Circles 1, 11 and 13, and 9-pointed stars 5 and 6 form the ingredients for the final reconstruction.

15. Making black relevant areas, denoting standing crop, finishes the reconstruction of the 2001 Milk Hill formation.
