Moons on Venus?

Venus has no moons at all. It is the brightest object in the sky apart from the sun and OUR moon. Hope that helps.

Does Venus have any moons?

No, Venus has no moons. Either none were formed during its history as a planet, or any that may have been formed could have been pulled from orbit by the gravity of the Sun and other planets. Mercury, even closer to the Sun, also has no moons. Any moon in too close an orbit could be destroyed b (MORE)

Why doesn't Venus have any moons?

Either no moons were created when the planet was formed, or any that were created were later thrown out of orbit by the stronger gravity of the Sun.

Does Venus have any moons or rings?

No. Venus is devoid of rings and moons. Mercury is the only other of the eight major planets that has no moons. Both planets are closer to the Sun than Earth is.

How many moons Venus have?

Venus is one of the few planets that does not have any moonsorbiting it. Mercury also does not have any moons.

Mercury and Venus are the only 2 planets in our solar system which do not have moons. Both of these planets have no confirmed moons. All of the other planets have at least one moon.

What is the distance between the moon and Venus?

Virtually the same as the distance between Earth and Venus, which varies greatly according to where each is in its orbit. At its closest to Earth, Venus is still more than 100 times as far from Earth as the Moon.

How far away is Venus from the moon?

Approximately 161,761,143 miles (about 260,329,324 kilometres) Comments: Obviously, the distance is very similar to that between Venus and Earth. That distance varies as the planets move in their orbits. So, it's changing all the time. The minimum distance is about 25 million miles.

Is Venus the only planet without moons?

No, Mercury has no moons also.. yes it is Venus doesn't not have any moons it's the only planet in our solar system. Once again ignore the last answer MERCURY HAS NO MOONS ALSO.

How many Venus years are in a Venus day?

A Venus day (spin) is 1.08 times as long as a Venus year. The very slow rotational day of Venus is 243 Earth days long, while its year (one orbit of the Sun) is only about 225 Earth days. Combined with the retrograde direction of its spin, this produces a "solar day" (sunrise to sunrise) of about (MORE)

Does Venus' have 2 moons?

no.Venus has no moons whats so ever.If venus had moons, then the planet would be much cooler because the moon would be blocking venus from the sun, but venus is above 5000 degrees so it has no moons.Hope this helps.

How far is Venus from the moon?

Just about as far as it is from Earth. Please note that the distance from Earth to Moon is quite insignificant compared with the distances to the Sun, or to other planets. So, how far is Venus from Earth? Unfortunately there's no fixed answer because the distance is always changing, as the planets m (MORE)

Is Venus' the planet i see by the moon?

At different times the various planets look to be near the moon. So sometimes when you see something very bright near the moon, it is a planet. The four main planets that look bright are Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, so when you see something near the moon, it is one of those four. You can use lo (MORE)

What are moons of Venus?

Venus has no moons. Like Mercury, it is one of two planets in our Solar System that has no moons.

How big is Venus compared to the moon?

The diameter of Venus is about 3.48 times the moon's diameter. A better comparison is with the Earth. Venus' diameter is about 96% of Earth's ... practically the same.

Why does Venus have phases like the moon?

You know how the moon rotates around the Earth, and has phases because of the suns rays hitting its crust? Its the same with Venus. You know that Venus revolves around the sun, right? But did you know that it also has phases? Its true. Anyway, Venus's phases are just like the moons. I don't know why (MORE)

How far is Venus away from the Moon to the Earth?

The moon can be anywhere between 1 / 4 million miles farther and 1 / 4 million miles closer to Venus than Earth is. That's a range of roughly 1.9% of the closest that Venus can ever approach Earth.

What moons are close to Venus?

There are no moons around Venus or Mercury. So the closest moon to Venus is the Moon orbiting the Earth, which is not really any closer than Earth is. (Venus is always at least 100 times farther away from Earth than the distance of the Moon.)

Are the any moons on Venus?

There are no moons in orbit around Venus. It might help you to know there are also no moons orbiting Mercury either. Earth has only one moon, and all the other planets in our solar system have multiple moons. Even the dwarf planet Pluto has three moons.

What would happen if the moon was as big as Venus?

Earth would probably be a double-planet similar to the Dwarf Planet Pluto and its moon Charon. Orbiting a barycenter outside the center of the planet itself. This would be interesting because this is an unusual getup for a planet.

Is venus the only planet that does not have moon?

No. In the Solar system, Venus and Mercury do not have any natural satellites. All the other planets do. With dwarf planets, we're less certain; we know for sure that Eris, Pluto, Orcus, and Quaoar definitely do. Probable dwarf planet Salacia also has a natural satellite. Outside the Solar Sys (MORE)

Is Venus' a large moon?

No Venus is a planet, much like our Earth, because it orbits the Sun. A moon is a large body that orbits a planet. Venus is closer to the Sun than the Earth, the second planet from the Sun. The Earth is the third planet from the Sun.

Did Venus pass the sun or the moon?

The sun. The moon orbits the earth and is our nearest space object - sometimes it passes between us and the sun, this is called a lunar eclipse. Venus orbits the sun. It is nearer the sun than us, so very occasionally it passes between us and the sun. This is called the transit of Venus.

How many moons go round venus?

Venus has no natural moons, but there is an asteroid (2002 V68) which orbits Venus in a long, lazy orbit. There are a couple of smaller rocks orbiting, as well.

Is venus closer to the sun or moon?

It depends on where Venus is in its orbit relative to Earth. At itsclosest, Venus is closer to Earth and the moon than it is to thesun. The distance between Venus and the sun does not changesignificantly, but its distance to Earth does; at times it may bedirectly between Earth and the sun, while at (MORE)

Is Venus bigger than Earths moon?

Yes, Venus is bigger than the Earth's moon. The volume of Venus is 9.38 x 10^11 cubic kilometers, which is greater than the moon's volume of 2.19 x 10^10 cubic kilometers.

How many moon is there on Venus?

Venus and Mercury are the only planets in the Solar System that do Not have any moons. Even Pluto, a dwarf planet, has a moon.

Was Mercury a moon of Venus?

There is a theory by Thomas Van Flandern (1940-2009) that hadlittle support from mainstream astronomy. The model for Mercury,which has phases and a western evening and eastern deep nightversion like Venus, both planets being inferior (having orbitsbetween Earth and the Sun), as an ex-moon of Venus i (MORE)

Does venus have a moon or a sun?

Venus does not have any moons. It revolves around the sun as theearth does and the six major planets. Also asteroids and cometsalso revolve around the sun.

Why do the planets mercury and venus not have moons?

One possibility is that they are too close to the sun, so that thesun's gravity would disrupt the orbit of any would-be moon. Orperhaps Mercury and Venus never experienced any events that wouldlead to the formation of moons with stable orbits.
