Venus is located right after Mercury making it the second planet in the Solar System close to the Sun. Its name derives from the ancient Roman diva of affection and loveliness. Some scientists say that Venus is like a twin of Earth because of the fact that its weight and magnitude are almost exactly like Earth’s.

In order to rotate fully around the Sun, it takes Venus 225 days to complete this task.

Venus rotates in the opposite direction. This may be because it could have been struck by an asteroid or any other flying object in the past.

Venus is lighting the sky mostly after the Moon. Moon is the brightest object in the sky during the night. Venus can sometimes be seen during the day if the conditions permit it.

Venus is the most scorching planet in the Solar System. The temperature on the planet is around 462 °C, therefore there are no seasons compared to Earth.
