SpaceX rules!

This is a really cool analysis on home field advantage in the NFL. In short : traveling West to East across time zones is what creates the advantage.

If we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?

Many of you know definitely the famous Fibonacci sequence, whose first terms are: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144 ... 
The sequence is named after the mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci of Pisa in the thirteenth century.

► Many and interesting are the properties of the Fibonacci sequence. You can learn more at this link >>

I came across by chance in this post, the text of which carry over below and from which I got the title of my post:

Fibonacci you crazy bastard…
As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!
Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34...
So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!
You bet!! Depicted here is a:
2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
5 sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
8 sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)
I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe…

Watch at the source for seeing the cited simmetries>>

What do you think about this?

► I thank +John Baez for having suggested his excellent post "The Pentagram of Venus", that perfectly adheres to the question of this post.
