The planet with the shortest day is Jupiter which rotates in only 10 hours. The planet with the longest year is Neptune which takes 60,188 days to revolve around the sun.
But Venus takes 243 days just to rotate on it’s axis and only 225 days to revolve around the sun. That means Venus’s day is longer than it’s year!
Teacher’s Two Cents (by Mom)
2 Peter 3:8 says that “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” I guess that’s also true on Venus!
Of course there have been days that have felt like a thousand years to me here on earth, too. And more than one year has flashed by like a day.

Thanks, boys! I just shared the thoughts with my junior high students here at school and they are as amazed with God’s handiwork as you are.
