Welcome to the Planet Venus!
Venus is the second planet from the sun and is about 109 million kilometres away from Earth. It is often referred to as Earth's sister planet as it is similar in size.
Venus has a very thick atmosphere and has a type of gravity called a 'density gravity'. Venus has no moons and there is currently no life on the planet Venus.
Venus is very famous for it's bright colour, which is why its nickname is 'The Morning Star' or 'The Evening Star'. It is visible from Earth and at night time it looks like the brightest star in the sky.
The surface of Venus is very rocky, with hundreds of thousands of mountains, volcanoes and even mysterious valleys. The planet is made up of 97% Carbon dioxide and 3% nitrogen with a few other chemicals.
The temperature of Venus ranges from 460 degrees Celsius during the day and around -200 degrees Celsius at night. This is because Venus captures most of the sunlight and because it has such thick clouds it traps the heat and creates a very hot planet.
Humans have not yet been able to get to Venus, although a lot of work is being done to try and find ways to get to the planet.
