star-field #aa01

Automated star-field generator based on the angle that spirals into all of nature: 137.5

This is using Fibonacci’s GOLDEN ANGLE – That angle is very important in describing how primordia form the spirals we see. It is, in fact, known as the golden angle. Here’s where the Fibonacci Series comes in. Take two consecutive Fibonacci Numbers and divide the smaller by the larger. Then multiply by 360 degrees. Let’s try 55/89 * 360 = 222.472… . We can round that degree measure to 222.5 degrees. Remember from trigonometry that angles can be measured internally or externally, so if you subtract it from 360 degrees to convert it, you get 137.5 degrees, the golden angle.
