Reconstruction of theEtchilhampton Hill (3) 31-08-2008 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing down. | ||||

3. |
Draw the five rays of pentagon 2, from the center of circle 1 to its angular points. Extend each ray in the opposite direction up to circle 1, and number the end-points of these lines, counterclockwise, from 1 for the righthand one just above the horizontal centerline to 5, as shown. | ||||

4. |
Create the inscribed pentagram (regular 5-pointed star) of circle 1, by drawing the five diagonals of pentagon 2. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by pentagram 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, defined by the end-points of a centerline (diameter), between the center of circle 1 and the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

7. |
Construct two "two-points" circles, between the center of circle 6 and its both intersections with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

8. |
Construct four "two-points" circles, by repeating step 7 for each of circles 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, between the center of the rightmost circle 8 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the righthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric circle 1, tangent to circle 10 at the righthand side. | ||||

12. |
Construct three circles concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual intersections (tangent points) of circles 8. | ||||

13. |
Draw eight lines, all from the end-point of rays 3 nr. 2, tangent at both sides to circles 5 and 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to the diagonal of pentagon 2 connecting the upper lefthand and lower righthand angular points. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 14 three times, the first to the lower intersection of circle 15 and the vertical centerline, the others to the corresponding intersection of their preceeding ones. | ||||

17. |
Construct three circles concentric to circle 1, tangent to circles 16 at the lower sides. | ||||

18. |
Draw eight lines, all from the end-point of rays 3 nr. 3, tangent at both sides to circles 15 and 17. (For clarity, some of the results of previous steps are removed temporarily). | ||||

19. |
Repeat step 18 for rays 3 nrs. 1, 4 and 5. | ||||

20. |
Circles 1 and 11, pentagon 2, lines 3, 13, 18 and 19, and pentagram 4, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

21. |
Remove all parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
Colouring all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

23. |
...or to flattened plants, will finish the reconstruction of the Etchilhampton Hill (3) formation of 31-08-2008. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
