11. |

13. |

14. |

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the intersection of circle 10 and ray 3 nr. 2. | |

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

17. |
Copy circle 16 to the top of hexagon 2, and move this circle to its own lower intersection with the vertical centerline. | |

18. |
Copy circle 16 five times, to the corresponding positions on the other rays 3 (nrs. 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6). | |

19. |
Construct a circle passing through the top of hexagon 2, and passing through the upper two intersections of circle 16 and triangles 9. | |

20. |
Copy circle 19 two times, to the corresponding positions on rays 3 nrs. 3 and 5. | |

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 19, tangent to circle 8 at the upper side. | |

22. |
Copy circle 21 two times, to the centers of circles 20. | |

23. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower lefthand intersection of circle 14 and ray 3 nr. 2, passing through the other intersection. | |

24. |
Copy circle 23 to the center of circle 1. | |

25. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the righthand side of hexagon 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the nearest sides of triangles 5. | |

26. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 25 at the righthand side. | |

27. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the lower intersections of circles 10 and 24 with the vertical centerline. | |

28. |
Copy circle 27 two times, to the centers of circle 1 and the lower circle 18. | |

29. |
Construct two lines, parallel to ray 3 nr. 4, tangent to circles 28 at both sides. | |

30. |
Repeat steps 28 and 29 two times, with respect to rays 3 nrs. 2 and 6. | |

31. |
Circles 1, 10, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, and 26, and lines 29 and 30, are used for the final reconstruction. | |

32. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

33. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

34. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2019 Stanton St. Bernard formation. | |

35. |
The final result, matched with the aerial image. |
