Venus is the second planet away from the sun. Venus is 108,209,000 kilometers away from the sun. It takes Venus 225 Earth days to complete one orbit. Venus rotates on an axis but unlike every other planet, Venus rotates east to west not west to east.


Nobody ever really sees Venus’ movement before rarely scientists discover a transit. A transit is when Venus goes directly across the sun in it's orbit. This happens every 243 years.Venus rotates east to west not west to east and that's why a transit happens.
