Feuerbach's Conic Theorem

The Locus of the centers of all Conics through the Vertices and Orthocenter of a Triangle (which are Rectangular Hyperbolas when not degenerate), is a Circle through the Midpoints of the sides, the points half way from the Orthocenter to the Vertices, and the feet of the Altitude.
