Reconstruction of theHodson 30-07-2008 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 5, pointing down. Notice, that 4 (square 2) x 5 (pentagon 4) x 5 (pentagon 6) = 100! | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle, the centerline (diameter) of which coincides with the upper side of pentagon 6. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 5 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 9 at the righthand side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 7 to the righthand intersection of circle 10 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the righthand side. | ||||

13. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, defined by the end-points of a centerline (diameter), between the intersection of the upper side of pentagon 6 and the upper intersection of circle 5, both with the vertical centerline. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 to the righthand intersection of circle 12 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 14 at the righthand side. | ||||

16. |
Construct the inscribed regular 100-sided polygon of circle 12, pointing to the right. | ||||

17. |
Draw the 100 rays of polygon 16, from the center of circle 1 to the angular points. Number the rays counterclockwise, starting with 0 for the rightmost ray, as shown. | ||||

18. |
Remove all rays 17, except for the parts of rays nrs. 1, 8, 60 and 84 in between circles 8 and 5, for the parts of rays nrs. 4, 33, 50, 69, 91 and 94 in between circles 3 and 10, and for the parts of rays nrs. 9, 18, 35, 48, 77 and 95 in between circles 1 and 12, as shown. | ||||

19. |
Circles 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 and 15, and lines 18 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

20. |
Remove all other parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
Colouring all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
...or to flattened crop, will complete the reconstruction of the Hodson formation of 30-07-2008. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
