As you can see, these circles intersect on the sides of the triangles. I did not expect that, nor have I proven it. I have moved the triangle around to check to see if this remained true, and it did pass this test. If I can figure out a proof for this, I’ll post it; if one exists already, please post a comment letting me know where to find it.

Later edit: I found out that these points of intersection are the altitude feet. Here’s a diagram showing the lines containing the altitudes, meeting at the orthocenter. These blue lines also contain the angle bisectors of the brown triangle defined by the altitude feet.
