About RobertLovesPi

I go by RobertLovesPi on-line, and am interested in many things, a large portion of which are geometrical. Welcome to my little slice of the Internet. The viewpoints and opinions expressed on this website are my own. They should not be confused with the views of my employer, nor any other organization, nor institution, of any kind.

Happy Moon Day!

To celebrate Moon Day — the anniversary of the first Moon landing — this year, I made a rhombic triacontahedron with colored images of the Moon on each face. I got the image of the Moon from its Wikipedia page, and made this polyhedral image using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free right here.

The Icosahedron’s Fifth Stellation

The version above is colored per face, except for parallel faces, which have the same color. The one below is in “rainbow color mode.”

I made these using Stella 4d, which is available as a free trial download at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
