VENUS Second Planet from the Sun

By: Jacob Marshall

These are Venus' 6 phases as it orbits around the Sun, as viewed from Earth.

Venus's weather is very harsh. It rains sulfuric acid, so you probably don't want to live there. It would burn through your house, through your clothes, then burn through you. Not a proper living choice (unless you want to die of course). It also has temperatures of 900 degrees fahrenheit.

This video is about the climate of Venus.

In this photo, you will see that Venus is almost as big as Earth.

Venus

Venus is named after Venus (or in Greek, Aphrodite) the Roman goddess of love. In ancient times, Venus was known to the Babylonians, as Ishtar, the goddess of womanhood and love, so the planet has a long standing tradition of being associated with love.

This is the goddess Venus.

This photo shows how Earth's axis is more on an angle than Venus' axis.

This is a cutaway of Venus, showing what the planet is made of.

And last but not least, this is Venus' size compared to every star and planet in the Milky Way!
