Reconstruction of theWhite Sheet Hill 29-06-2016 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 up. Number the angular points clockwise 1 - 5, starting at the top. | ||||

3. |
Draw the five diagonals of pentagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Draw the five diagonals of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 3. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the mutual intersections of diagonals 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 2. | ||||

7. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 6, pointing down. Number the angular points clockwise 6 - 10, starting at the lower angular point. | ||||

8. |
Draw the five diagonals of pentagon 7. | ||||

9. |
Draw the five diagonals of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 9. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersection of the lower righthand diagonal 9 and the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 five times, to the angular points of pentagon 7. | ||||

13. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the pentagon (passing through its angular points), enclosed by the upper side of pentagon 7, by diagonals 1-3 (from angular point 1 to angular point 3) and 1-4, and by diagonals 7-9 and 8-10. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the upper side of pentagon 7 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 13 at the upper side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 to the top of pentagon 2. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 16 at the upper side. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper, and passing through the lower intersections of circle 16 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 18 at the upper side. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 15 to the upper intersection of circle 18 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 20 at the upper side. | ||||

22. |
Circles 5, 10, 12, 14, 17, 19, and 21, and pentagon 2, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
