5. |
Draw the connecting line between both intersections of circles 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, with one angular point on line 5 (thus, with sides horizontal and vertical). | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 three times, to the other angular points of square 6. | ||||

10. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of triangle 7. | ||||

11. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of the righthand side of square 6 with the lower side of triangle 2 and the lower righthand circle 9. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct two circles concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 12 at both sides. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 11 to the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 14 at the righthand side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 3 two times, to the intersections of circle 15 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

17. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of the lower circles 9 with the lefthand and righthand sides of square 6. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 17. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 18 two times, to the centers of circles 16. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 8 two times, to the centers of circles 16. | ||||

21. |
Construct the circumscribed equilateral triangle of circle 18, pointing up. | ||||

22. |

23. |
Copy circle 22 two times, to the intersections of circle 15 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

24. |
Copy circle 11 to the center of the righthand circle 23. | ||||

25. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 24 at the righthand side. | ||||

26. |
Circles 3, 8, 9, 10, 13, 16, 19, 20, 23 and 25, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

27. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

28. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

29. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Water Eaton Copse formation of 12-05-2012. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
