Reconstruction of the
Weyhill 18-07-2003 formation

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

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

3. Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 2.

4. Create the circumscribed hexagram (regular 6-pointed star) of circle 3, by constructing two circumscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down.

5. Draw twelve rays from the center of circle 1, six to the angular points of hexagon 2 and six to the mutual intersections of the two triangles making up hexagram 4, as shown.

6. Construct a circle centered at the right intersection of triangles 4, passing through the end-points of the right side of hexagon 2.

7. Copy circle 6 five times, to the remaining intersections of triangles 4.

8. Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, tangent to the adjacent circles 7 at the near sides, as shown.

9. Copy circle 8 five times, to the centers of circles 7.

10. Construct a circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 1 and 3.

11. Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circle 6 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing up.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, tangent to circle 11 at the near side.

13. Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circle 12 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing up, see detail.

14. Copy circle 10 to the right intersection of circles 12 and 13, see detail. This circle is tangent both to one side of one triangle 4 and to circle 6.

15. Copy circle 14 (10) five times, to the corresponding positions with respect to the remaining sides of triangles 4 and circles 7, as shown.

16. Construct a line, tangent to the upper two circles 15 at the lower sides.

17. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 16.

18. Construct a circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 3 and 6.

19. Copy circle 18 six times, to the centers of circles 14 and 15.

20. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 8 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing down, tangent to circle 1 at the near side, as shown.

21. Copy circle 20 six times, to the centers of circles 19.

22. Construct a small circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 6 and 8.

23. Copy circle 22 two times, to the center of circle 14 and to the right intersection of triangles 4, as shown.

24. Construct two parallel lines, tangent at both sides to circles 23, as shown.

25. Copy the two circles 23 each five times, to the centers of circles 15 and the remaining intersections of triangles 4.

26. Repeat step 24 five times, for the corresponding pairs of circles 25.

27. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the left circle 23 at the left side, see detail.

28. Circles 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, and 27, and lines 24 and 26 make up the necessary ingredients for the final reconstruction.

29. Leave out all parts not visible in the formation.
