In terms of size, composition and orbital location Venus is actually the planet that’s most similar to our own. Venus is about a third closer to the sun than Earth, and so it receives twice the amount of sunlight. This extra heat caused greater evaporation of initial surface water. Venus turns on its axis much more slowly than Earth — a single Venusian day lasts 243 Earth days, which is longer than Venus’ year, which takes 224 Earth days. Belying this gentle pirouette, the winds at Venus’ cloud tops can reach 220 miles per hour (360 kilometers per hour), or about 60 times the pace of the planet’s turning (Winds are caused in part by planetary rotation).
Proportionally, if the same gusts blew on Earth, equatorial cloud winds would reach an astonishing 6,000 miles per hour (9,650 kilometers per hour). Venus has retrograde rotation (Uranus does this, too). On Venus, the sun rises in the west and sets in the east.
