Venus
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Are you ready to visit Earth's closest neighbor? Sit back and fasten your seat belts. We are on our way to Earth's sister planet, Venus. Venus is the second planet from the sun.
 
2     Venus is a beautiful planet at night. Besides the moon, it is the brightest object in Earth's night sky. It is just a little smaller than Earth. It is a lot like Earth inside. It is also very mysterious. We cannot see the surface of Venus. Hot, deadly air hides it. Scientists have to use radar to "see" through the thick clouds that cover Venus. Venus has no moon and no rings.
 
3     Venus is hot, dry, and no place for living things. To stand on the planet Venus, you would have to pass through clouds of acid and storms as strong as a hurricane. You might get struck by lightning, too. There is a lot of lightning in the storms on Venus.
