Parallelograms (Posted on 2017-09-09) Difficulty: 4 of 5

Let ABC be an acute triangle with altitudes AD and BE. The
intersection of AD and BE is H. Points F and G make CADF
and CBEG into parallelograms. M is the midpoint of FG.
Ray MC intersects the circumcircle of ΔABC again at point N.

Prove that ANBH is a parallelogram.

When I made my first reply I missed:

"It's easy to prove angles ANB and BNA are equal..."

Unless you are using directed angles, ANB and BNA are always equal.

I'm still having a problem showing that the ray MC passes through the circumcenter of triangle ABC. 

If I could do that, then proving that ANBH is a parallelogram is easy.

If I could prove ANBH is a parallelogram, then proving that the 
ray MC passes through the circumcenter of triangle ABC is easy.
