Venus Is Hot, Hot, Hot!

Star light, star bright.
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might,
have the wish I wish tonight.


 
3     How many times have you said that little poem while wishing on a star? Chances are, the "star" you were wishing on was the planet Venus.
 
4     Often, Venus is the brightest light we see in the nighttime sky. Only the moon is brighter. But Venus is not a star; it doesn't make its own light. Venus and other planets only reflect light from the sun. Stars like our sun make their own light, as well as heat, by a process called nuclear fusion. Venus's thick clouds reflect the sunlight like a mirror.
