Reconstruction of the 2019 Clear Wood formation | ||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | |

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 2. | |

4. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 3, pointing up. | |

5. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 4. | |

6. |
Draw the connecting line between the upper righthand angular point of hexagon 4 and the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline. | |

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of line 6 and the vertical centerline. | |

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the lefthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline. | |

9. |
Construct the "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the center of circle 8 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | |

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 7 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the upper righthand side of hexagon 4. | |

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

12. |
Copy circle 10 to the top of triangle 2. | |

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of circle 12 and the righthand side of triangle 2. | |

14. |
Copy circle 9 to the lefthand intersection of circle 13 and the horizontal centerline. | |

15. |
Copy circle 9 to the center of circle 10. | |

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 15 at the upper side. | |

17. |
Copy circle 16 to the top of triangle 2. | |

18. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of circle 17 and the righthand side of triangle 2. | |

19. |
Construct a circle, passing through the intersection of the righthand side of triangle 2 and the horizontal centerline, and passing through the upper and lower intersections of circle 3 and the vertical centerline. | |

20. |
Construct the "two-points" circle between the center of circle 9 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | |

21. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 20, and passing through the upper and lower intersections of circle 3 and the vertical centerline. | |

22. |
Copy circle 20 to its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | |

23. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 22, and passing through the upper and lower intersections of circle 5 and the vertical centerline. | |

24. |
Circles 1, 5, 7, 8, 11, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, and 23, are used for the final reconstruction. | |

25. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

26. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

27. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2019 Clear Wood formation. | |

31. |
The final result, matched with two aerial images. |
