Tangents of Crop Circles

Crop circles, formed by crushed crops, are a pattern of geometric shapes, such as triangles, circles, etc. They illustrate many geometric theorems and relationships between the shapes of the pattern.


Basic Description

Comparing three crop circles that aren’t exactly touching can form three tangent lines, each line touching all three of the circles. Connecting the center points of all the circles creates a triangle, which is equilateral. The circumcised circle of the triangle passes through all the center points of the three circles and shows relations of diameter to these circles.



Why It's Interesting

Crop circles are interesting because
