Venus is the __________________________ planet from the Sun in our Solar System. It is the _________________________ planet in our Solar System. This planet is covered with fast-moving sulphuric acid clouds which trap __________________________ from the Sun. Its thick atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide. Its __________________________ cover traps the heat of the sun (the greenhouse effect), giving Venus temperatures up to 480°C. Venus is a planet on which a person would asphyxiate in the poisonous __________________________, be cooked in the extremely high heat, and be __________________________ by the enormous atmospheric pressure. Venus was named after the Roman goddess of love.

Venus has an ________________________ core but only a very weak magnetic __________________________. It has no moons. Venus is about 7,521 miles (12,104 km) in diameter; this is about 95% of the diameter of the Earth. Venus is the closest to Earth in size and mass of any of the other planets in our Solar System. Venus' __________________________ is about 4.87 x 1024 kg. The gravity on Venus is 91% of the __________________________ on Earth. A 100-pound person would weigh 91 pounds on Venus.

Venus is also known as the "__________________________ star" or the "evening star" since it is visible and quite bright at either dawn or dusk. It is only __________________________ at dawn or __________________________ since it is closer to the __________________________ than we are. Like the moon, Venus' appearance from Earth changes as it orbits around the Sun. It goes from full to gibbous to __________________________ to new and back.
