Reconstruction of the
Hunt's Down 17-06-2020 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed octagon (regular 8-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up.

3. Construct the inscribed circle of octagon 2.

4. Draw the eight rays of octagon 2, from the center to the angular points.

5. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the nearest (upper) side of octagon 2.

6. Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1.

7. Construct a circle passing through the center of circle 1, and tangent to the upper and lower righthand sides of octagon 2.

8. Draw a line from the center of circle 1 to the upper intersection of circles 5 and 7.

9. Copy circle 7 to the intersection of line 8 and circle 3.

10. Construct a circle centered at the upper righthand intersection (tangent point) of octagon 2 and circle 3, tangent to the vertical centerline.

11. Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 1.

12. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 11 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the upper righthand ray 4.

13. Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 9.

14. Construct a circle centered at the intersection (tangent point) of circle 10 and the vertical centerline, tangent to the nearest (righthand) side of octagon 2.

15. Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of circles 1 and 3 with the upper righthand ray 4.

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

17. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 15.

18. Copy circle 14 to the intersection of circle 17 and the lower righthand ray 4.

19. Copy circle 15 to the intersection of circle 17 and the upper lefthand ray 4.

20. Copy circle 14 to the lower intersection of circles 17 and 19.

21. Copy circle 15 to the intersection of circle 17 and the lower lefthand ray 4.

22. Copy circle 14 to the lower intersection of circles 17 and 21.

23. Copy circle 15 to the lefthand intersection of circle 9 and the horizontal centerline.

24. Construct a circle concentric to circle 9, tangent to circle 23 at the righthand side.

25. Circles 1, 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24, and lines 4, are used for the final reconstruction.

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