Let $${T_1}$$, $${T_2}$$ be two tangents drawn from (- 2, 0) onto the circle $$C:{x^2}\,\, + \,{y^2} = 1$$. Determine the circles touching C and having $${T_1}$$, $${T_2}$$ as their pair of tangents. Further, find the equations of all possible common tangents to these circles, when taken two at a time.
