Did you know that Venus can appear as a star in both evening and the morning because of how bright is is? It's not the brightest object in the Solar System, but is the brightest planet. It is also very hot due to the high winds of the lower atmosphere and the high pressure. Acid and dust reflect the Sun's rays from Venus and traps the heat with carbon dioxide- causing it to become very hot. Although it is called Earth's sister planet, life cannot survive on Venus. With the high pressure and the never ending volcanoes, everyone would die. However, it is very similar in size and some materials of composition, and is proven to once had water before it all dried out. Venus is also named after the Greek goddess, Venus, for her brightness in beauty and all she enchanted with love.
