Reconstruction of the
Ogbourne St. George 15-06-2003 formation

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

2. Copy circle 1 two times, one to its right intersection with the horizontal centerline, the other to the corresponding intersection of this last copy.

3. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the rightmost circle 2 at the right side.

4. Copy circle 1 to the right intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline.

5. Copy circle 1 two times, one to the right intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline, the other to the corresponding intersection of this last copy.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the rightmost circle 5 at the right side.

7. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with the leftmost circle 2 on the right and with the rightmost circle 2 on the left (therefore, enclosed by both circles 2).

8. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 7.

9. Construct the inscribed octagon (regular 8-sided polygon) of circle 6, pointing to the right.

10. From the center of circle 1, draw the eight rays of octagon 9, to its angular points.

11. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 8 and the upper right and lower right rays 10.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 7, tangent to line 11.

13. Construct a circle concentric to circle 4, tangent to circle 12 at the near side.

14. Construct a circle centered at the rightmost angular point of octagon 9, tangent to circle 13 at the near side.

15. Extend the rightmost ray 10 up to the right side of circle 14.

16. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circle 8 on the right and with circle 12 on the left.

17. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circle 5 on the right and with circle 4 on the left.

18. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circle 6 on the right and with circle 14 on the left.

19. Copy circle 16 three times, one to the right intersection of circle 4 and the horizontal centerline (see detail), the second to the intersection of circle 14 and line 15 (extended ray 10), the third to the intersection of this last copy and the same line 15 (see detail).

20. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circle 4 on the right and with the leftmost circle 19 on the left.

21. Copy circle 20 to the right intersection of circle 12 and the horizontal centerline.

22. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circles 12 and 21, both on the left.

23. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circles 4 and 20, both on the left.

24. Construct a circle the end-points of the centerline of which coincide with the intersections of the horizontal centerline with circle 14 (see detail) and the middle circle 19, both on the left.

25. Copy circles 12, 16 and 22 together five times, from the center of circle 12 to the intersections of circle 8 with upper and lower, upper right and lower left, and leftmost rays 10, at the same time rotating in accordance with the direction of these rays, as shown.

26. Copy circles 4, 17 and 23 together five times, from the center of circle 4 to the intersections of circle 3 with upper and lower, upper right and lower left, and leftmost rays 10, at the same time rotating in accordance with the direction of these rays, as shown.

27. Copy circles 14, 18 and 24 together five times, from the center of circle 14 to the intersections of circle 6 with upper and lower, upper right and lower left, and leftmost rays 10, at the same time rotating in accordance with the direction of these rays, as shown.

28. Circles 1, 4, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27, together, form the basic pattern of the formation.
