Temperatures on Venus-EvanEdit

Did you know the Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system but how did it get its extreme heat temperature? this is because of the planets atmosphere it is composed of thick yellow clouds that cover up the planet's surface, this atmosphere is so poisonous atmosphere would instantly kill any breathing creature that would dare enter the planet, this intense heat also comes from the clouds that make Venus's surface invisible.

The greenhouse effect is the strongest on this planet, since Venus's clouds are mostly made out of carbon dioxide this makes a greenhouse effect that traps the Sun's heat the planet stays at 460 degrees Celsius at most times which is an average of 863 degrees Fahrenheit, the planets temperature will stay at these temperatures whether it is day or night.
