Reconstruction of the
Barton Stacey Belt 9-07-2023 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. Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 3, pointing up.

5. Copy circle 3 to the upper righthand angular point of hexagon 4.

6. Copy circle 3 to the upper lefthand angular point of hexagon 4.

7. Copy circle 3 to the lower angular point of hexagon 4.

8. Construct a circle tangent to the upper lefthand and righthand sides of hexagon 2, and tangent to circle 5.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 8.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through the upper righthand intersection of hexagon 2 and circle 9.

11. Copy circle 10 two times, to the centers of circles 6 and 7.

12. Construct a circle centered at the top of hexagon 4, tangent to the upper sides of hexagon 2.

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

14. Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 13.

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

16. Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 15, pointing up.

17. Construct a circle centered at the lower angular point of hexagon 16, passing through its upper righthand angular point.

18. Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and the upper intersection of circle 17 and the vertical centerline. Divide this line into six equal parts.

19. Construct a (very small) circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the upper righthand side of hexagon 2.

20. Copy circle 19 five times, to the upper intersection of circle 17 and the vertical centerline, and to the upper four division nodes 18.

21. Construct five pairs of circles concentric to circle 17, tangent to circles 20 at both sides.

22. Copy circle 19 to the center of circle 1, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own upper intersection with the vertical centerline. See detail.

23. Construct a circle concentric to circle 7, tangent to circle 22 at the upper side.

24. Repeat all necessary steps to copy and rotate circles 20 and 23, together, two times, with respect to the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of hexagon 16.

25. Circles 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, 21, 23, and 24, are used for the final reconstruction.

26. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
