Tucker Circles Through Homothety

Tucker hexagons are hexagons inscribed in a (base) triangle whose sides are alternately parallel to the sides of the base triangle and its orthic triangle. Tucker hexagons are always inscribable in a circle. As the applet below demonstrates, Tucker hexagons can also be obtained at the intersection of the side lines of two triangles homothetic in their common Lemoine point.

Please try switching to IE 11 (Windows) or Safari (Mac), for no other browser nowadays runs Java applets. If asked whether to allow the applet to load, click Yes - the applet is signed with a security certificate from a trusted company.

What if applet does not run?
