Reconstruction of the 2016 Fulley Wood formation | ||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | |

2. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection, and passing through the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | |

3. |
Copy circle 2 five times, to the lefthand intersection of circle 2 and the horizontal centerline, and consecutively to the corresponding intersections, as shown. | |

4. |
Copy circle 1 to the lefthand intersection of the leftmost circle 3 and the horizontal centerline. | |

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 4 at the lefthand side. | |

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection, and passing through the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | |

7. |
Copy circle 6 five times, to the righthand intersection of circle 6 and the horizontal centerline, and consecutively to the corresponding intersections, as shown. | |

8. |
Construct five circles concentric to circle 2, tangent to circles 3 at the lefthand sides. | |

9. |
Construct five circles concentric to circle 6, tangent to circles 7 at the righthand sides. | |

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower, and passing through the upper intersection of circles 2 and 6. | |

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 1. | |

12. |
Copy circle 1 to the upper intersection of circle 5 and the vertical centerline. | |

13. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 11 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 12 at the upper side. | |

14. |
Construct a circle tangent to and outside of circles 2 and 6 at the lower sides, and tangent to circle 11. | |

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the upper intersection of circle 13 and the vertical centerline. | |

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 13, tangent to circle 15 at the lower side. | |

17. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 5 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 16 at the upper side. | |

18. |
Copy circle 17 six times, to the lefthand intersections of circles 2 and 8 with the horizontal centerline. | |

19. |
Construct six circles concentric to circle 2, tangent to circles 18 at the lefthand sides. See detail. | |

20. |
Construct five circles concentric to circle 6, tangent to circles 19 at the righthand sides, except for the innermost circle 19. See detail. | |

21. |
Circles 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 13, 16, 19, and 20, are used for the final reconstruction. | |

22. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

23. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

24. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2016 Fulley Wood formation. | |

25. |
The final result, matched with two aerial images. |
