Reconstruction of the
Hailey Wood 16-07-2007 formation

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

2. Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline.

3. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 2 at the upper lefthand side.

4. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circles 1 and 2, tangent to circle 3 at the righthand side.

5. Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to circle 4 at the lower righthand side.

6. Copy circle 5 seven times, the first to its own righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, all successive circles to the corresponding intersection of the last copied one, as shown.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 5 at the righthand side.

8. Construct four circles, all concentric to circle 1, tangent to the first four circles 6, all at the righthand side, as shown.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the fifth circle 6 at the righthand side.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the sixth circle 6 at the righthand side.

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the last circle 6 at the righthand side.

12. Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 2 and the horizontal centerline.

13. Draw two lines, parallel to the horizontal centerline, starting at the intersections of circles 7 and 12, extending to the right up to circle 11, as shown.

14. Copy circles 1, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 as a whole, while mirroring with respect to both intersections of circle 11 and lines 13, as shown.

15. Draw a line parallel to the horizontal centerline, from the upper intersection of circle 7 and the vertical centerline, extending to the right, up to the corresponding circle 14, as shown.

16. Draw sixteen rays, all starting at the intersection of circle 11 and line 15, tangent to circles 1, 7, 8, 9 and 10, all at both sides, as shown.

17. Extend the sixteen rays 16, each up to the next outer circle, as shown.

18. Repeat steps 16 and 17 for circles 14, mirrored with respect to the same mirroring points as in step 14, as shown.

19. (For clarity, the results of steps 16, 17 and 18 are left out for the next steps).

Draw a line similar to line 15, parallel to the horizontal centerline, now from the upper intersection of circle 10 and the vertical centerline, extending to the right, up to the corresponding circle 14, as shown.

20. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 4 at the lower righthand side.

21. Extend line 15 to the left up to circle 9.

22. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 9 and line 21, passing through the intersection of the outermost circle 14 and line 15.

23. Copy circle 20 to the intersection of line 19 and circle 22.

24. Construct a circle concentric to circle 22, tangent to circle 23 at the lower lefthand side.

25. Copy circle 20 to the intersection of line 19 and circle 24.

26. Construct a circle concentric to circle 22, passing through the intersection of circle 11 and line 15.

27. Copy circles 22, 25 and 26 as a whole, while mirroring with respect to the same mirroring points as in step 14, as shown.

28. Circles 1, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 22, 25, 26 and 27, and lines 16, 17 and 18 are used for the final reconstruction.

29. Leave out everything not visible in the formation itself.

The final result, matched with the aerial image, fits well in most places.
