Venus

Venus is the only planet with a girl’s name.  Venus is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.  

Venus is called the  morning star and evening star because Venus comes up before the sun and goes down before the sun in the evening.

Venus is a rocky dwarf just like Earth and is our nearest neighbouring planet, but we have never really seen it because it is always surrounded by thick clouds.

Venus’s diameter is 12048 km and it is 107 million km from the sun. Venus takes 225 earth days to orbit around  the sun. A day on Venus is 116 earth days long.
