Reconstruction of the
2001 Huish (2) formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed undecagon (regular 11-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct the inscribed circle of undecagon 2.

4. Draw the 11 rays of undecagon 2.

5. Centered at the end-point of the ray one to the right of the upper part of the vertical centerline, construct a circle, tangent to the two adjacent rays.

6. Copy circle 5 five times, to the end-points of every second ray, counted from the center of circle 5, three on the left, two on the right. Notice, that at the bottom two circles overlap.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circles 5 and 6 at the near sides.

8. Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, passing through the closest intersections of the adjacent circles 6 and circle 1.

9. Copy circle 8 ten times to the end-points of all the other rays 4, eleven in total (circle 8 included).

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circles 8 and 9 at the near sides.

11. Extend the two rays 4 at the bottom up to the opposite sides of circles 9.

12. Copy circle 7 two times to the end-points of the extended rays 11.

13. Construct two circles centered each at one of the intersections of the extended rays 11 and circle 1, tangent to the corresponding circles 12 at the far sides.

14. Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circles 13.

15. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual intersections of circles 8 and 9, as shown.

16. Copy circle 15 to the center of circle 14.

17. Extend the vertical centerline up to the bottom of circle 16.

18. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 16, pointing down.

19. Construct a (small) circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 16 and the (extended) vertical centerline, passing through the lowest intersection of circles 9 and the same centerline.

20. Copy circle 19 three times to the angular points of triangle 18.

21. Circles 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 14 and 20 together form the necessary parts for the final reconstruction.

22. Trimming away all parts no longer needed, and making black areas corresponding to standing crop (except for the "appendix" at the bottom, where black denotes flattened crop), finishes the reconstruction of the 2001 Huish (2) formation.
