Locus of Reflection

K is an arbitrary point on the coordinate plane. Reflect point K over segment HI to form K'. Activate the trace function in GSP for the point K'. Change the slope of segment HI by dragging point H to a new location. Continue moving point H until you see a pattern formed by the path of K'. What do you see and why is it there?
