The stellated decagon or sadeg is a polygon compound composed of two pentagons. As such it has 10 edges and 10 vertices.

As the name suggests, it is the first stellation of the decagon.

Its quotient prismatic equivalent is the pentagonal antiprism, which is three-dimensional.

## Vertex coordinates

Coordinates for the vertices of a stellated decagon of edge length 1 centered at the origin are given by:

• $\left(±\frac12,\,±\sqrt{\frac{5+2\sqrt5}{20}}\right),$ • $\left(±\frac{1+\sqrt5}{4},\,±\sqrt{\frac{5-\sqrt5}{40}}\right),$ • $\left(0,\,±\sqrt{\frac{5+\sqrt5}{10}}\right).$
