Reconstruction of the2001 Berranburgh Field formation |
|||||

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

2. |
Construct a regular 12-sided polygon (a dodecagon), inscribed in this circle, with angular points at the ends of the centerlines. | ||||

3. |
Draw the diagonals between angular points five apart, resulting in a twelve-pointed star. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle concentric with the larger one, with a radius up to the intersection of two neighbouring diagonals, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle with its center at an angular point of the twelve-pointed star, tangent to two adjacent diagonals (intersecting each other perpendicularly), as shown. | ||||

6. |
Repeat this another five times, up to a total of six circles, evenly distributed over the points of the twelve-pointed star. | ||||

7. |
Draw a circle concentric with one of the circles 6, and passing through two points of the twelve-pointed star, that are four apart from the one in the center, see figure. | ||||

8. |
Repeat this for the other two points just passed. | ||||

9. |
Construct an equilateral triangle from the three points of the twelve-pointed star half way in between the previous points, as shown. Now, all ingredients are there. | ||||

10. |
Removing all superfluous parts results in the reconstruction of the 2001 Berranburgh Field formation. (Black denotes standing crop). | ||||
