A year on Venus is equivalent to 225 Earth days. This is much shorter than a year on Earth, because Venus has a shorter orbit around the sun than Earth does. More »

A year on Venus lasts 224.7 Earth days. A full year on Venus completes faster than an Earth year of 365 days, although the length of a day on Venus runs much longer, lasting over 240 Earth days. As with Earth, astronomer... More »

The most widely accepted theory is that the planet Venus was formed through a process called core accretion. In core accretion, gravitational forces draw together dust and particles from space to form a rocky core, which... More »

For most of the year, Venus is visible to the naked eye. The exception to this is when Venus is too close to the sun to be observed. More »

It takes roughly 365 days, or 1 year, for the Earth to complete its orbit around the Sun. Although it is an elliptical orbit, it is almost circular, so there is only a slight difference between the closest and farthest p... More »

Venus’ orbit around the sun is equal to approximately 224.7 Earth days. Although the other planets have an elliptical orbit around the sun, Venus’ orbit is more circular with an eccentricity of less than 0.01. More »
