Venus In the solar system there are 9 planets. Venus is an interesting planet. It was named after the Roman goddess of love. It was named Venus because of its dazzling beauty. Venus is the 2nd planet from the Sun, and Earth’s twin sister. Venus’ air is poisonous, and made up of carbon dioxide. The cloud on Venus reflects the sunlight and traps the heat. This is called a green house effect. A green house effect can get up to 900 degrees (482 degrees). Venus is a very strange planet. It spins backwards so the Sun rises in the West and set in the East. A day on Venus is 243 Earth days, longer than its year of 225 days. If we switched to Venusians clocks a school day would last for 4 mouths!! Venus atmosphere is made up of gases and dust, but mostly made up carbon dioxide. If people were on Venus they could not breath because there is little oxygen. The atmosphere is so heavy it would feel like you were deep in the ocean. This is called pressure.
