Mirror mirror on the wall --> why isn't it working at all ?

I want to make 2 circles beside each other. First I add a circle. Still in object mode, I click modifier mirror. I select the object and use G to move. However I still see a circle instead of 2 circles. Can anyone tell me if I missed out any step? Where is my the other circle? :spin:

Move the circle in edit mode.
The mirror modifier mirrors about the objects origin. In object mode you are also moving the origin with the so the mirrored circle is directly on top of the original, hence you don’t see two circles. In edit mode you move the vertices but the origin stays where it is.

Thanks Richard. I found my lost circle.
