Reconstruction of theStantonbury Hill 7-07-2007 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the circumscribed regular 96-sided polygon of circle 1, with the midpoint of a side on the horizontal centerline. Number the angular points counterclockwise 1 through 96, starting at the rightmost point just above the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

3. |
Draw six pairs of diagonals of polygon 2, by connecting angular points nrs. 1 and 48, 49 and 96, 8 and 57, 9 and 56, 16 and 65, 17 and 64, 24 and 73, 25 and 72, 32 and 81, 33 and 80, 40 and 89, and 41 and 88. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the vertical centerline and diagonal 3 from 49 to 96, tangent to diagonals 3 from 9 to 56 and from 40 to 89. See detail. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 4 eight more times, to the lefthand intersection of circle 5 and to the corresponding intersections of consecutively copied circles, all with the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Construct nine circles, all concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 5 and consecutive circles 6, all at the lefthand sides, as shown. | ||||

8. |
Extend diagonals 3 up to outer circle 7. | ||||

9. |
Draw six rays of polygon 2, from the center of circle 1 to angular points nrs. 2 through 7. | ||||

10. |
Extend rays 9 up to outer circle 7. | ||||

11. |
Repeat step 9 for the other eleven sectors of polygon 2, formed by diagonals 3, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Repeat step 10 for rays 11. | ||||

13. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, whose end-points of a centerline coincide with the center of circle 1 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline, as shown. | ||||

14. |
Construct a similar circle, whose end-points of a centerline coincide with the center of circle 1 and its lefthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the intersections of circles 13 and 14 and the vertical diagonals 3, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 15 two times, to the centers of circles 13 and 14. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle, passing through the intersections of extensions 10 of rays 9 nrs. 4 and 5 and the second and third smallest circles 7, as shown. See detail. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 17. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of extension 10 of ray 9 nr. 4 and circle 18, tangent to circle 17 at the lower side. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 19 to the center of circle 17. | ||||

21. |
Copy circles 17 and 20 as a whole eleven times, to the corresponding positions within the other eleven sectors, as shown. | ||||

22. |
Circles 1, 7, 13, 14, 16, 17, 20 and 21, and lines 8, 10 and 12, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
