Fact #141

In today’s fact we learn about Venus! Mr. Toes teaches us about how incredibly long one day on Venus is…its extremely long.

The Fact a Day:

Did you know that…Venus is fascinating because it spins the opposite direction of the Earth! Venus’s rotation on its axis is very slow. It takes about 243 Earth days to do one full rotation on its axis. An interesting comparison is that it takes 225 Earth days for Venus to go all the way around the sun. That means that one day on Venus which is 243 Earth days is actually longer than one year on Venus at 225 Earth days!
