This is the mathematical story of how our solar system is arranged. Each planet is a specific distance from the next planet. The mean distance between the planets is 1.62 x 10^9 meters. that is basically equal to (PHI)(1 x 10^9) meters; or φ x 1000000000 = 1,682,000,000m
The center circle represents the Sun even though the size is not proportional.
The CAD program would not allow me to use proportionate circles and still be able to view the picture. In fact I had a hard time making small circles. This is because I didn't know how to use the program correctly at the time.
Right on top of the Sun at the beginning of the spiral is Mercury. The planets go in order from there.
Sun = Center
Distance from preceding planet ------ Distance from the Sun
Mercury = Beginning of spiral = 1 @ 58 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Venus = 2nd on spiral = 1.86 @ 108 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Earth = 3rd on spiral = 1.39 @ 149.66 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Mars = 4th on spiral = 1.52 @ 226.82 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Asteroid Belt = 5th on spiral = 1.71 @ 502.66 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Jupiter = 6th on spiral = 1.71 @ 778.5 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Saturn = 7th on spiral = 1.82 @ 1350 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Uranus = 8th on the spiral = 2.01 @ 2880 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Neptune = 9th on spiral = 1.56 @ 4500 x 10^9 meters from the Sun.
Average distance between planets = 1.62 x 10^9 meters
Our solar system is basically arranged by using the Golden Mean φ = (PHI) = 1.618 as a base measure to separate the planets. the spiral is actually a dual spiral consisting of φ, and a Fibonacci sequential pattern. The Fibonacci sequence is the male aspect, and φ is the female aspect of the spiral.
Beginning with Venus we start to add the sequential distances. We do not include Mercuries distance because it is the first 1 planet and the second 1in the Fibonacci sequence.
Sun = 1 + Mercury = 1; so Venus = 2 where we start the count of all the planets distances from the Sun.
Sum of distance between planets ----- Fibonacci and φ^x - 1 sequential order.
Mercury = 1; Fib seq.= 1; φ^1 - 1 =.618; difference =.382
Venus = 1.86; Fib seq. = 2; φ^2 - 1 = 1.618; difference =.14;.242
Earth = 3.25; Fib seq. = 3; φ^3 - 1 = 3.24; difference =.25;.01
Mars = 4.77; Fib seq. = 5; difference =.23
Asteroid Belt = 6.48; φ^4 - 1 = 5.85; difference =.63
Jupiter = 8.19; Fib seq. = 8; difference =.19
Saturn = 10; φ^5 - 1 = 10.09; difference =.09
Uranus = 12.01 = φ^5 + 1 = 12.09; difference =.08
Neptune = 13.57; Fib seq. = 13; difference =.57
φ^6 - 1 = 16.94
Fib seq. = 21
φ^7 - 1 = 28.03 = Lunar cycle in days; actual = 28.077 days
I haven't done the work to determine where Pluto, the Kipper belt, or the Oort cloud reside in the sequence, but I'm sure that they fit in very closely, like the rest of the planets do.
Start with the center circle (Sun) and go 1 unit up. From this point we shift 90 degrees per planet and mark the position at each point. The first number you see after the planets names directly above are the numbers used to plot the points of the spiral.
continue with the 90 degree rotation of the points and you will find that it ends at approximately 4.25 revolutions or basically φ^3 revolutions.
This is the true orientation of our solar system. Even though the planets are moving and rarely align themselves in this exact sequence, the actual distance between them is what is relative to the argument. The mean distance varies do to the elliptical orbits, but not by much on the cosmic scale.
