Phi and the Solar System

The dimensions of the Earth and Moon are in
Phi relationship, forming a Triangle based on

The illustration shows the relative sizes of the Earth and the Moon to scale.

 Draw a radius of the Earth (1).
 Draw a line from the center point of the Earth to the center point of the Moon (square root
of Phi).
 Draw a line to connect the two lines to form a Golden Triangle (Phi).

Using dimensions from Wikipedia and geometry’s classic Pythagorean Theorem, this is
expressed mathematically as follows:

which are based on phi. much higher than any previous planet to planet orbital distance ratio.47224. (Insight on mean orbital distances contributed by Robert Bartlett. The shape of the Universe itself is a dodecahedron based on Phi New findings in 2003 based on the study of data from NASA’s Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) on cosmic background radiation reveal that the universe is finite and shaped like a dodecahedron. a geometric shape based on pentagons. Could it be that this is actually the 11th planet and the 10th planet will be found at an orbit whose ratio is 1. preserving the phi average? Time will only tell. Its ratio to Pluto would thus be 2. but if it happens remember that you heard it here first.represent the asteroid belt.52793 times that of Pluto.) 2005 unveiled the discovery of a 10th planet called 2003UB313. It was found at a distance of 97 times that of the Earth from the Sun. See the Universe page for more .
