As List of brightest natural objects in the sky, the brightest natural object in Earth's night sky after the Moon, Venus can cast shadows and can be visible to the naked eye in broad daylight. Venus lies within Earth's orbit, and so never appears to venture far from the Sun, either setting in the west just after dusk or rising in the east a little while before dawn. Venus orbits the Sun every 224.7 Earth days. It has a synodic day length of 117 Earth days and a rotation period, sidereal rotation period of 243 Earth days. As a consequence, it takes longer to rotate about its axis than any other planet in the Solar System, and does so in the Retrograde and prograde motion, opposite direction to all but Uranus. This means the Sun rises in Poles of astronomical bodies, the west and sets in the east. Venus does not have any natural satellite, moons, a distinction it ...
