An illustration of 3 concentric ellipses that are tangent at the end points of the vertical axes. The horizontal axes (the major axes of the ellipses) decreases in size in each successive ellipse. The major axis equals the minor axis in the smallest ellipse, thus forming a circle.

An illustration of 3 concentric ellipses that are tangent at the end points of the vertical axes, which is drawn in the illustration. The horizontal axes decreases in size in each successive ellipse. The major axis is horizontal for the outmost ellipse and vertical for the innermost ellipse. When the major and minor axes are equal, the result is a circle (as in the second/middle ellipse).
