Reconstruction of theMartinsell Hill 7-07-2018 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 diagonals of pentagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Draw the five diagonals of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 3, and extend these lines upto pentagon 2 in both directions. Number the intersections with pentagon 2 clockwise 1 - 10, starting at the top left. | ||||

5. |
Draw the five diagonals of the pentagon enclosed by diagonals 4, and extend these lines upto pentagon 2 in both directions. Number the intersections with pentagon 2 clockwise 11 - 20, starting at the top left. | ||||

6. |
Draw five connecting lines between the following pairs of numbered intersections: 11 and 18, 12 and 15, 13 and 20, 14 and 17, and 16 and 19. | ||||

7. |
Draw five connecting lines between the following pairs of numbered intersections: 1 and 8, 2 and 5, 3 and 10, 4 and 7, and 6 and 9. | ||||

8. |
Draw five connecting lines between the following pairs of numbered intersections: 1 and 4, 2 and 9, 3 and 6, 5 and 8, and 7 and 10. | ||||

9. |
Complete the ten small, peripheral pentagrams (regular 5-pointed stars) by drawing every three respective connecting lines, as shown. See detail. | ||||

10. |
Complete the five small pentagrams, in between pentagrams 9, by drawing every two respective connecting lines, as shown. See detail. | ||||

11. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by lines 5. See detail. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 11 to the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 12 at the upper side. | ||||

14. |
Circle 13, and lines 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
