Reconstruction of the 2020 Stanton St. Bernard 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 to the right. | |

3. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of hexagon 2, pointing up. | |

4. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of hexagon 2, pointing down. | |

5. |
Draw the six rays of hexagon 2, from the center to the angular points. | |

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower righthand intersection of triangles 3 and 4, passing through the upper lefthand angular point of hexagon 2. | |

7. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 6, pointing to the right. | |

8. |
Draw the connecting line between the lower righthand angular point of triangle 3 and the lower angular point of triangle 4. | |

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 8 and the lower righthand ray 5, passing through the center of circle 1. | |

10. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of circle 9, pointing to the right, and extend the lower righthand side in both directions upto hexagon 7. | |

11. |
Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and the lower righthand angular point of triangle 3. | |

12. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 11 and the righthand side of triangle 4, passing through the lower angular point of this triangle. | |

13. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of circle 12, pointing to the right, and extend the upper righthand side in both directions upto hexagon 7. | |

14. |
Remove all parts from hexagon 7, and the extended sides of hexagons 10 and 13, ... | |

15. |
...such that the shown pattern remains. | |

16. |
Repeat all the necessary steps to copy pattern 15 five times, with respect to the other sides of hexagon 2. | |

17. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing up. | |

18. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the righthand side of hexagon 17 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the top of triangle 3. | |

19. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 18 at the righthand side. | |

20. |
Circle 19, hexagon 2, triangles 3 and 4, lines 5, and patterns 15 and 16, are used for the final reconstruction. | |

21. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

22. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

23. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2020 Stanton St. Bernard formation. | |

24. |
The final result, matched with the aerial image. |
