When you spilled the milk, did it look like the moon?
Typically, I found that it looked like an ellipse, I believe this is due to the fact that milk wants to spread out evenly in all directions, but when the extra force is applied in a given direction, vis a vis spilling, it tends to skew the normal circle. As such, the resultant shape is typically more elliptical than circular, but it's nothing to cry about.
