Milk Hill of June 2009 seems to predict a new, bright astronomical object in our solar system,
possibly a comet or even an “extra planet”, on the new Moon of June 1, 2011
Over slightly more than a week in June of 2009, a large new crop picture appeared at Milk Hill in southern England in three separate phases (see milkhill2009c or lucypringle.co.uk or lucypringle). Almost two years later now in April of 2011, still no one seems to understand what they were trying to tell us there!
While we were studying several crop pictures which may predict an enigmatic “planet X” for December of 2012, we came across some distinctive astronomical symbols in Milk Hill of June 2009. Those distinctive symbols suggest that it may refer to an upcoming date in June of 2011. To be more precise, the Milk Hill crop picture of 2009 seems to show a rare planetary alignment which will only occur once in the near future on June 1, 2011. It also shows an extra anomalous symbol to represent a “new astronomical object” in our solar system, currently of unknown origin, which will supposedly be seen on the same date.
The new object could be a “comet in outburst”, as we saw predicted in crops between 2005 and 2007 for Comet 17P Holmes (seetime2007g or time2007h). Alternatively, it could be our first glimpse of the enigmatic “planet X”. Interestingly enough, those crop artists counted it in their Milk Hill field diagram as an “extra planet” between Mars and Jupiter. The unknown object is not Comet Elenin, nor is it Comet Holmes in a second outburst.
The first part of Milk Hill on June 21, 2009 showed an “astronomical sextant” with five different planetary orbits attached, as may be seen when looking up into Earth’s sky
Phase I of Milk Hill showed the symbolism of an “astronomical sextant” as explained below:
Five different “planetary orbits” (drawn as curved thin lines) were attached to that “sextant”, meaning that we should look up into Earth’s sky on some upcoming date, to see five bright planets (or the Moon) lined up in a row. Each of those five orbits begins on “Earth” (red letters), where a “horizontal viewing tube” might be located on any sextant (see the white sextant at lower right). Yet which planets, and on which calendar date?
The second part of Milk Hill on June 23, 2009 showed more of those five planetary orbits, looking up into Earth’s sky using a sextant
Phase II of Milk Hill showed considerably more detail for those five planetary orbits, which are now numbered on the left (in yellow) as 1-2-3-4-6, or below (in blue) as 1-2-3-4-5:
On the right we can also see six “altitude boxes”, which tell how high above the horizon each of six bright objects will be on some upcoming date. Planet “1” will be low in the sky, while planets “2” and “3” will be of medium height, and then planets “X”, “4’ and “5” will be high. Since planet Earth is clearly missing from those five curved orbits, we can tentatively assign planet “1” as the Moon, planet “2” as Mercury, planet “3” as Venus, planet “4” as Mars, and planet “5” as Jupiter.
The crop diagram shows a small circled object between planets “3” and “4”, which we have labeled as planet “X”. That unknown object “X” seems to change the planetary numbering for Jupiter from “5” to “6”, when it is included on the left (in yellow), but not when it is omitted below (in blue). This would seem to imply that it lies somewhere in space between Mars and Jupiter, although we may be able to see it soon in projection from Earth, between the apparent sky locations of Venus and Mars.
It seems less likely that planet “6” could be Saturn, while omitting planet “5” as Jupiter, although such an alternative interpretation cannot be completely ruled out. So do those distinctive astronomical symbols, drawn in an English crop picture, have any real-life solution in Earth’s sky?
Such a rare alignment of five planets will appear on the new Moon of June 2, 2011 at sunrise in Sydney, or 10 hours later in southern England
Yes, the astronomical symbols which were drawn in crops at Milk Hill during June of 2009 do have a real-life solution! Such a rare alignment of five bright objects will appear on the new Moon of June 1, 2011. Those four planets (and the Moon) will be clearly visible at sunrise on June 2 in Sydney, Australia, or 10 hours later in southern England (see iceinspace):
On that day, the Moon and four bright planets will line up in Earth’s sky in a very distinctive fashion. A new Moon will be located close to the horizon at “low altitude”, while Mercury and Venus will follow just above at “medium altitude”, then Mars and Jupiter will follow at “high altitude”.
The relative altitudes of those five planets as measured with a sextant seem correct for a new Moon of June 1, 2011
When we compare the real sky altitudes of those five planets (for sunrise in Sydney on June 2) with their approximate values as predicted in crops at Milk Hill, we can see a reasonably good match:
Planet “X” has not been included in the sky diagram, which is based on known planetary objects within our solar system. Yet the crop picture from Milk Hill 2009 seems to tell us that we will see a bright unknown object between Venus and Mars when viewed from Earth, on the new Moon of June 1, 2011, if we have interpreted it correctly.
The unknown object “X” was circled to indicate its importance, and may appear between 3 = Venus and 4 = Mars as seen from Earth
When we look more closely at how planet “X” was portrayed in Milk Hill of 2009, we can see a small circled object with standing crop at its centre, somewhere between the apparent sky locations of Venus and Mars as viewed from Earth:
Strangely enough, planet “5” or Jupiter becomes “6” on the left, once planet “X” is included, although its main count remains “5” below, where planet “X” has been omitted. We can even see where a curved line (orbit) for planet “6” on the left, joins directly to five small balls below which represent “planet “5”. That would be a strange way to describe some new comet, but we will have to wait and see.
The third part of Milk Hill on June 30, 2009 showed a series of strange astronomical hieroglyphs that were clearly alien-made
Perhaps to dispel any possible notion that Phases I and II could have been carved out by local human fakers, using rope and boards, Phase III of Milk Hill 2009 showed an amazing series of astronomical hieroglyphs, stretching across the green field for approximately 500 meters:
No one currently has any idea what those alien-made symbols might mean.
Summary and conclusions
In the analysis presented above, we related many astronomical symbols from a crop picture which appeared at Milk Hill in June of 2009, to an upcoming sky alignment of four bright planets and the Moon on June 1, 2011. Then we suggested that an “anomalous extra symbol” from the same crop picture might represent a “new astronomical object” in Earth’s sky, to be seen on the same date.
Several questions arise here. First, how rare is the upcoming planetary alignment on June 1, 2011? Can we be absolutely sure that we have deduced the correct date? No, we cannot be absolutely sure, but the field data when compared to the astronomical data appear quite suggestive. By April 30 of 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter will create an approximate linear shape in Earth’s sky (see nightsky). Then during the entire month of May, they will provide a remarkable display which Sky and Telescope calls the “Four Planet Dance of 2011”, culminating on a new Moon of June 1, 2011 (see skyandtelescope or skyandtelescope).
The last close approach in Earth’s sky (or conjunction) between Mars and Jupiter was in February of 2009, just before Milk Hill in June (see mikesalway or iceinspace.com). Those four objects Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter (without Venus) did not create a linear shape then as they will in 2011. The next close approach between Mars and Jupiter will be in July of 2013, again without Venus (see planets). Thus the upcoming planetary alignment on June 1, 2011 is quite rare, and will not be repeated anytime in the near future.
Nor will planet Saturn enter into a linear conjunction with Venus and Mars anytime in the near future. There was a conjunction of Venus, Mars and Saturn in August of 2010, but not in a linear shape (see berthoudrecorder). The next Mars-Saturn conjunction will be in August of 2012, and will not include Venus. The last linear arrangement of Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn was in April of 2002 (see thunderbolts).
Secondly, what might the small “circled” symbol in Milk Hill of 2009 refer to? Are they trying to tell us about a bright new comet, or something more important concerning an enigmatic “planet X”? We cannot say for sure, based on current information. A similar symbol was drawn at Bluebell Hill in August of 2005 to predict the outburst of Comet 17P Holmes in October of 2007 (seetime2007h). So it might be just a comet, yet those crop artists seem to number it in their field diagram as an “extra planet”, whose orbit does not lie in the plane of the ecliptic as for five other known objects shown there.
Really we have no other option now but to wait and see! Several crop pictures from the summer of 2009 could be interpreted in terms of a “new astronomical object”, but none except Milk Hill seem to give a clear fit to known planetary locations. If our proposed fit to the planets on June 1, 2011 is correct, then we should see something unusual in the morning sky on that day.

Appendix 1. Altitudes and azimuths for five bright planetary objects on June 1, 2011
In order to accurately describe the crop picture shown at Milk Hill in 2009, we need to show two things. First, five bright planets (or the Moon) should line up sequentially in “altitude” as measured with a sextant. Secondly, those five bright planets (or the Moon) should also line up sequentially in “azimuth”, as measured with a compass along the horizon.
We therefore calculated a series of altitudes or azimuths for the two dates of June 2, 2011 at sunrise in Sydney, or 10 hours later for sunrise in southern England, using a program called “Solar System Live” (see /solar). Those data are listed in Tables 1 and 2 below.
Table 1. Five bright planets as seen from Sydney on the new Moon of June 1, 2011 at 21:03:42 UTC (latitude 34o S, longitude 151o E, local time 0700 on June 2)
Table 2. Five bright planets as seen from southern England just after the new Moon on June 2, 2011 at 04:00:00 UTC (latitude 52o N, longitude 1o W)
Both sets of altitudes do line up sequentially as required: from +1o to +37o in Sydney, or from +0o to +16o in southern England, when going from the Moon to Mercury to Venus to Mars to Jupiter. Likewise, both sets of azimuths do line up sequentially as required: from -119o to -141o in Sydney, or from -129o to -86o in southern England, for the same series of bright sky objects. Some of the data for southern England at sunrise on June 2, 2011 are shown below. They seem to be in excellent accord with the sky map, as well as with the Milk Hill crop picture:
Relative directions of planetary motion, as shown by “thin curved lines” in the crop picture on the right, are also correct for hourly times later than sunrise. In other words, Jupiter and all of the planets drawn there will move “up and to the left” as the Sun rises, to more positive altitudes and less negative azimuths. We tried earlier to fit these data to a canonical date of December 23, 2012, but planet Mars (4) was far out of place, and sextant altitudes were not explained. The correct date seems therefore to be June 1, 2011, although this cannot be established with absolute certainty.
