Venus is the second planet in the Solar System and is the second brightest object during the night sky, with the Moon being the first. Venus was the Roman goddess as love and beauty in astronomy mythology. In Greek, her name was Aphrodite.

Venus has been known for being Earth’s sister planet. It's almost identical in size, chemistry, gravity and density as Earth. Venus has an atmosphere, but its atmosphere is thicker than Earth’s atmosphere, making it difficult for modern science to enter.

Pluto was discovered in 1930 by an astronomer named Clyde Tombaugh. And then there was a girl named Venetia Burney, who suggested that Pluto should be named after the Roman god of the underworld. Pluto is the second closest dwarf planet to the sun & the second largest dwarf planet with Eris being the biggest.

One point, scientists have discovered multiple mountains and volcanoes on Venus. Earth has a protective layer that's called "Ozone Layer". However, Venus does not have an Ozone Layer. The harsh radiation from the Sun finds the path into Venus’ atmosphere.

Venus is 0.7 AU (Astronomical Unit) awat from the Sun, with a diameter of 12,000 km.There are no known moons in this plaent, and there are no rings.Venus rotates counter-clockwise. The average surface temperature is + 500 degrees C.
