Reconstruction of the 2017 Woolstone Hill formation | ||

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

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection. | |

3. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 2. | |

4. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular six-sided polygon) of circle 3, pointing to the right. | |

5. |
Copy circle 1 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 4. | |

6. |
Copy circle 1 to the righthand intersection of circle 2 and the horizontal centerline. Move this circle to its own corresponding intersection. | |

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 6. | |

8. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 7, pointing to the right. | |

9. |
Copy circle 1 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 8. | |

10. |
Construct a line tangent to the upper two circles 9, at the upper sides. | |

11. |
Copy circle 1 to the intersection of line 10 and the vertical centerline. Move this circle to its own upper intersection with the vertical centerline. | |

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 11. | |

13. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 12, pointing up. | |

14. |
Copy circle 1 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 13. | |

15. |
Construct a circle, passing through the intersections (tangent points) of circles 1, and 2, and upper righthand circle 5. | |

16. |
Copy circle 15 to the center of circle 1. | |

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to circle 16 at the righthand side. | |

18. |
Copy circle 17 eleven times, to the centers of circles 5, 11, and 14. | |

19. |
Copy circle 15 six times, to the centers of circles 6 and 9. | |

20. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the upper side. | |

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to uppermost circle 18 at the upper side. | |

22. |
Circles 2, 5, 6, 9, 11, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21, are used for the final reconstruction. | |

23. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

24. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

25. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2017 Woolstone Hill formation. | |

26. |
The final result, matched with two aerial images. |
