8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 6. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 7, passing through the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

10. |

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 5, tangent to circle 10 at the upper lefthand side. | ||||

12. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 8, pointing to the right. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 9 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the lefthand intersection of cirlce 9 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the upper intersection of the lowermost two circles 13. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 10 to the righthand intersection of circle 14 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

16. |

19. |
For clarity, some results of previous steps are left out temporarily.Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 18, pointing to the right. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 5 five times, to the other angular points of hexagon 19. | ||||

21. |
Copy circle 11 five times, to the centers of circles 20. | ||||

22. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 14. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 16 five times, to the intersections (tangent-points) of circle 22 and circles 13. | ||||

24. |
Copy circle 14 five times, to the centers of circles 23. | ||||

25. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the upper intersection of circle 11 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

26. |
Circles 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 20, 21, 23, 24 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 Guys Cliffe formation of 10-07-2010. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
