Venus is hot!!
Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system. Her temperature is usually around 900 degrees Fahrenheit. This is because the sun's light and heat goes in through the atmosphere and heats the ground. It can’t get out because the atmosphere is heavy with a sulfuric acid. This causes the ground of Venus to radiate heat.Venus is mostly solid, hot, rocky ground. But she does have some liquid ground. This liquid ground is caused by the many volcanoes covering Venus's surface. These volcanoes create lava pools. The lava comes out of volcano as fast as thunder claps. Also because of the volcanoes, there is tons of magma under ground, waiting to be spit out onto the surface ground. Scientists have found that Venus may have had water, long ago dried up,or absorbed into the hot air.
