Proving Morley's Theorem

 Triangles, circles, and trisections, oh my!....

Hat tip to Pat's Blog for leading me to this fascinating proof of "Morley's Theorem" over at a physics blog:

"Morley's theorem" states that the trisectors of the three angles of any triangle will always intersect to form an equilateral triangle.

AHHH, Geometry lives and breathes!!
