Friday Factoid Week 8

There is no atmosphere on Mercury which means it is very hot during the day and very cold during the night. Venus however, has so much atmosphere it remains 870 degrees all the time. The atmosphere is made of thick, lightening producing clouds of sulfuric acid moving at 220 miles per hour.  Also, my mom said to add this link to an old post (Titus, 14)

A day on Venus is longer than a year. It takes Venus 243 earth days to make one rotation but it only takes 225 earth days for it to orbit the sun. It also rotates in the opposite direction of the earth.  Here is a link to some silly things I wrote about Venus when I was 5 (Nate, 11).

Venus is the Morning Star and Venus is the Evening Star and it is so bright it can make shadows and it has volcanoes.  Mom’s adding this stuff from Hawaii for you to see (Gideon, 5).
