Orthocenter as the Isogonal Conjugate of the Circumcenter
The same is true for the vertices B and C. Therefore, H is the isogonal conjugate of the circumcenter O.

 circumcenter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The circumcenter of a triangle is the point of intersection of the three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle.
If the triangle is a right triangle (one of the angles of the triangle is equal to 90 degrees), then the circumcenter will lie on the midpoint of the hypotenuse of the triangle.
For triangle XYZ, X', Y', and Z' are the midpoints of the sides and C is the circumcenter of the triangle.

 Where are the Centers?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
For a right triangle, the Orthocenter is on the right angle vertex, the Circumcenter is the midpoint of hypotenuse, and the other 2 centers are somewhere inside the triangle.
An additional interesting fact: we should not be surprised to see that the Circumcenter falls on the midpoint of the hypotenuse, because the midpoint of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equidistant from the 3 vertices of the triangle.
In an obtuse triangle, the Circumcenter and Orthocenter are outside the triangle, while the other 2 centers are inside the triangle.

 Remarkable Line in Cyclic Quadrilateral
In a triangle, the orthocenter H, the 9-point center N, the centroid G, and the circumcenter O are collinear.
If the quadrilateral is cyclic, all four triangles share the circumcircle and the circumcenter O. In particular, in that case, the four Euler lines concur at the common circumcenter of the four triangles.
For the second approach, let's put the circumcenter O at the origin, and represent the vertices A, B, C, D of the quadrilateral by unit complex numbers a, b, c, d.

A circumcenter is equidistant from the vertices of its triangle, so the circumcenters of abc and abd both lie on the bisector of edge ab.
It follows that the circumcenter of abc is lower than the circumcenter of any non-Delaunay triangle atop ab that might be placed in the priority queue Q.
Then both of t's lower edges are created before the sweepline passes over t's circumcenter, because each of t's lower edges is either an input edge, or an edge of a Delaunay triangle with a lower circumcenter.
