Venus is Earth’s inner neighbour, and is similar in size to Earth.

When Venus is visible in the evening or morning sky, it’s the brightest object in the sky (after the Sun and Moon).

The thick clouds on Venus mean we cannot see to it’s surface and make it one of the most inhospitable planets in the Solar System. It’s surface has extremely high temperatures and pressures.
