4 Concentric Ellipses
An illustration of 4 concentric ellipses that are tangent at the end points of the vertical axes. The horizontal axes decreases in size in each successive ellipse. The major axis is horizontal for the outer two ellipses and vertical for the innermost ellipse. When the major and minor axes are equal, the result is a circle (as in the third ellipse).
