We than predict the tip of the right triangle at g(c) using the parallelogram rule. SinceBecause the distance of g(c) and the active border is too large, we guess again a type C triangle. Unfortunately, that guess was wrong. In fact, the right triangle, shown in gray color in the first picture, is of type R. In the Apollo sequence we encode this situation as (f,R) and continue the traversal with the left triangle of R. The prediction scheme is performed for all triangle in Edgebreaker sequence and leads to the following Apollo sequence: ((t), (f, R), (t), (t), (t), (t), (t), (t), (t), (f,R), (t), (t), (t)). With a trivial encoding scheme we can compress this sequence with 16 bits instead of 32 bits for the corresponding CLERS sequence.
