Reconstruction of the
2015 Uffcott formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct a circle centered at the top of hexagon 2, passing through its lower angular point.

4. Copy circle 3 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 2.

5. Draw the connecting line between the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline and the rightmost intersection of circles 4. Divide this line into five equal parts.

6. Construct four circles concentric to circle 1, passing through the division nodes 5.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the innermost intersections of circles 4.

8. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 7 at the lower side.

9. Copy circle 8 five times, to the centers of circles 4.

10. Construct two inscribed equilateral triangles of outermost circle 6, one pointing to the left, one to the right.

11. Construct a circle passing through the leftmost angular point of triangles 10, and passing through the upper and lower intersections of these triangles.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the righthand side.

13. Circles 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, and 12, are used for the final reconstruction.

14. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.

15. Colour all areas corresponding to standing...

16. ...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2015 Uffcott formation.

31. The final result, matched with the aerial image.
