Reconstruction of the
Mixon 10-08-2018 formation

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

2. Construct two inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, one pointing up, one pointing down.

These triangles enclose a hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon). Call this hexagon 2.

3. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the lower side of hexagon 2 and the vertical centerline, passing through its lower righthand angular point.

4. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 3, pointing down.

5. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 4.

6. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 5, pointing down.

7. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 6.

8. Copy circle 7 to the upper intersection of circle 5 and the vertical centerline.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 8 at the upper side.

10. Copy circle 7 to the upper intersection of circle 3 and the vertical centerline.

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 10 at the upper side.

12. Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 2.

13. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 12, pointing down.

14. Copy circles 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11, two times, to the other angular points of triangle 13.

15. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 12, pointing up.

16. Copy circle 7 four times, to the center of circle 1, and to the angular points of triangle 15.

17. Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 3.

18. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 17, pointing up.

19. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the righthand angular point of triangle 18.

20. Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 19, pointing to the right.

21. Copy circle 7 six times, to the angular points of hexagon 20.

22. Copy circle 7 to the lowest angular point of triangles 2.

23. Copy circle 7 two times, to the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of triangles 2.

24. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 22 at the lower side.

25. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, passing through the intersection of the righthand side of triangle 4 and the lower side of hexagon 2.

26. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 25 and the lower side of hexagon 2, tangent to circle 5 at the righthand side.

27. Copy circle 26 to the righthand intersection of circle 9 and the lower side of hexagon 2.

28. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 27 at the righthand side.

29. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, tangent to circle 22 at the upper side.

30. Copy circles 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 25, 28, and 29, three times, to the top and the lower lefthand and righthand angular points of triangles 2.

31. Copy circle 26 to the center of circle 22.

32. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 31 at the upper side.

33. Circles 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 21, 22, 23, 24, 30, and 32, are used for the final reconstruction.

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