Nine-Point Circle

The nine-point circle of a triangle goes through the foot and midpoint on each side, as well as through each of the midpoints between the orthocenter and the vertices. Using CircleThrough, it is possible to compute the circles going through each triple of points and verify that they are all the same circle.
