Unlike most other planets, Venus can be seen from Earth’s surface with the naked eye. Only the moon burns brighter in the night sky. Readers will learn why Venus’s thick clouds help make the planet so hot and why its days last so long. They will also get an up-close look at Venus’s remarkable land features and find out how scientists have studied the harsh surface of the planet.
