This reminds me the homothety about the centroid of factor −1/2.
The above picture \usetikzlibrary{calc} for computing coordinates from those of existing points. (A)!.25!(B) means $(A)+.25[(B)-(A)]$.

Little reminder about homothety Homothety preserves angles (and thus parallel lines). Homothetic polygons are similar, so the ratio of the corresponding sides is the same. Considering the radii of a circle under a homothety, we see that a homothety maps a circle to another circle.
Notation H: orthocenter G: centroid O: circumcenter ω: circumcircle HA: feet of altitude with respect to A.
