VENUS

Aphrodite

Venus's size is 7,523 miles. Venus was named after Aphrodite which was the Roman goddess of love. The tempature range is 850 degrees Fahrenheit, hot enough to melt lead! Physical features of Venus include volcanoes, thick clouds, moutains and valleys. Venus is the second planet from the sun. The distance from the sun is approximately 67 millon miles. Venus is a inner planet, which Galileo discovered in 1610. The length of a day on Venus is 243 Earth Days. While the

length of a year is 225 earth days, day longer than a year how strange! Although many planets have moons Venus does not. The color is creamy white. VENUS is creamy white because of it's clouds. The clouds are white because they are made up of sulfuric acid. Even though Venus is further from the Sun than Mercury its actually hotter due to the atmosphere.Scientists even think Venus actually snows Metal! Venus rains sulfuric acid, which actually evaporates before it hits the ground because it is so hot! Venus has phases like the moon. Venus actually rotates backwards. Sometimes Venus travels directly infront of the sun, which is called a transit. They were important because by timing the start and end of a transit and using math, scientists figured out how far away Venus was and used those number to figure out the size of the entire solar system (See math is important). The next transit is in 2117 hope you can wait!
