Love on Earth

Which is another way of spacing Venus and Earth

Next Page


A circle is drawn which represents Venus's mean orbit. A pentagram is constructed inside it and a small circle placed through the arm-crossing points. The radius of this small circle divides the radius of the larger into the golden section and can be used to space Venus's orbit to Earth's orbit, again with 99.9% accuracy. Although this is slightly less accurate, and a little more complicated than the diagram on the previous page, it is included here to show the ever present agreement between eight-fold and five-fold geometries.
