Reconstruction of theLurkeley Hill 22-06-2005 formation | |||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, and move (copy and delete original) this circle to its own righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 2 at the righthand side. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 2 at the lefthand side. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 4 to the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 4 at the righthand side. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 5 at the righthand side. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 8 two times, to its righthand and upper intersections with the horizontal and vertical centerlines, respectively. | ||||

11. |
Draw the connecting line between both intersections of circles 10. | ||||

12. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 9, with one angular point coincident with the intersection of circle 9 and line 11. | ||||

13. |
Draw the twelve rays of dodecagon 12, and number these starting with the rightmost one just above the horizontal centerline, counterclockwise, as shown. | ||||

14. |
Copy circles 1 and 3 together four times, to the intersections of circle 9 and rays 13 nrs. 2, 5, 8 and 11. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 1 four times, to the intersections of circle 3 and rays 13 nrs. 2, 5, 8 and 11. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 1 eight times, to the intersections of circle 7 and rays 13 nrs. 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 12. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 1 eight times, to the intersections of circle 9 and rays 13 nrs. 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 12. | ||||

18. |
Circles 1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 and 17 make up all necessary parts for the reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
Leave out the parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

20. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
...or to flattened crop, to finish the reconstruction of the Lurkeley Hill formation of 22-06-2005. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
