Geometry Puzzle - Need help.

Hi everyone,

I've just joined this forum and I'd like to ask its members for their assistance.

I found this underlying geometry between four fixed points (Buildings).
As you can see, the diameters of the two circles are related to the Golden Ratio.

I would like to ask the mathematicians and geometers of this forum whether anything else of significance stands out from this arrangement that I might have missed.


Thanks.

The line through the points of intersection of the smallest circles is not a tangent to the top circle.

This is because of the thickness of line I used to display the circle. If I drop it down to 1pt, it's tangent.

The difference is small, but it's not precisely a tangent. If you construct it to be a tangent, something else in the diagram won't work.
