Venus has no moons at all. It is the brightest object in the sky apart from the sun and OUR moon. Hope that helps.
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…y tidal forces (the Roche Limit). The tidal forces on a Venusian moon would differ from those on Earth's Moon. Rotationally speaking, Venus is practically standing still, and would exert a slowing force on any moons, no matter which direction they orbited in. (MORE)
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.
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.
None, neither planet has any moons. The only known planets in our Solar System that do not have moons are Mercury and Venus. The answer is no.
Mercury and Venus do not have any moons that orbit them. These twoplanets are rare among the planets in the solar system because theyactually have never had natural moons.
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.
Mercury and Venus has no moons, Earth has the one and Mars has two, Phobos and Deimos.
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.
well the reason why venus doesn't have any moons is because no moons were created when this planet was formed
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.
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.
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 …116.75 Earth days. So in terms of rotation, there is only 0.925 days in a Venus year. In terms of daylight experienced on the surface, there are 1.92 Venus days per Venus year. (MORE)
No, Mercury also has no moon. The link below will tell you about all the moons in our solar system.
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.
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…ove in their orbits. (MORE)
It depends in what position the moon is eg. Full moon, half moon or new 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…ts of different websites which will tell you what is in the sky at the moment and what looks to be near the moon. One of those websites is in the link below. (MORE)
Venus Does not have any known moons like Mercury (If caduceus isn't a moon) but it does have interesting features.
Venus has no moons. Like Mercury, it is one of two planets in our Solar System that has no moons.
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.
Venus does not have a natural satellite, though the asteroid 2002 VE 68 presently maintains a quasi-orbital relationship with it.
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… Venus has phases, but I sure do know how. ;) . (MORE)
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.
That means that the Moon covers Venus in such a way that it temporarily can't be seen from Earth.
No because the gas clouds in Venus obscure the view and because the moon is very small and millions of miles away.
No. Venus and Mercury are the only planets in the solar system without at least one moon.
When you see it up in the sky, yes! Venus is the second brightest object in the night sky. Our moon is first.
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.)
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.
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.
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…tem, we don't know if any planets have satellites or not; it's just barely possible to detect the planets in the first place (and we've never been able to detect one the size of Earth or smaller).

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.
Venus does not have any moon there is a theory that it used to have one and that it have hit venus but it remains a mystery
No, there are no moon near Venus. No moons orbit Venus. The nearest moon to Venus is Earth's 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.
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.
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 …other times it may beon the other side of the sun.

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.
Venus has about 3.5 times the surface area of our Moon. Venus-12,104 km Moon-3,476 km
The moon is 1,737.10 km and Venus is 6,052 km so it is not smaller. The moon is closer to the earth so it looks bigger in the sky.
Venus has never had a moon, at least not since humans have kept records of what they saw in the sky.
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.
The moon, which is, by far, the closest celestial object to Earth.The moon varies between about 220,000 and 250,000 miles from Earth.Venus never comes closer than 24,000,000 miles.
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…s largely basedon calculations done by Van Flandern and Harrington (1976) and goesas follows (Van Flandern, 1999): As Mercury tidally drifted outward it necessarily producedrotational drag on Venus, and it raised even bigger tides on theVenusian atmosphere causing it to circulate in retrogradedirection. After billions of years this might impart retrogrademotion on the whole planet. Tides caused on Venus by Mercury while the latter was stillspinning rapidly would have caused great interior heating andoutgassing, and probably a great deal of surface upheaval (mountainbuilding), too, causing the very dense atmosphere, the massiverelease of carbonate in the rocks as CO2 into the atmosphere, andthe very high mountains. Mercury is massive enough to have takenmuch of Venus's spin in the 1st half-billion years after formationand Venus's orbit is close enough to the Sun that complete escapeoccurs. The interchange of energy between Venus and Mercury wouldhave been enormous, given Mercury's large mass (4 1/2 times moremassive than the Moon). Most of the iron (which eventually produces the magnetic field) inVenus would have been forced up into the crust by an excessivelyhigh spin rate, with Mercury getting most of the iron duringfissioning, which would explain why Mercury has a stronger magneticfield than Venus. By contrast, the Earth's iron was not forced tothe surface, perhaps because the Earth was not as hot and molten asVenus during that phase of its formation. During its lunar phase Mercury would have acquired a prolate shape(somewhat elongated towards Venus) because of tidal forces. Bothplanets would have been melted by tidal heating in the early stagesfollowing escape. If this occured before Venus differentiated, itmight have caused Mercury's high density and stronger magneticfield. Subsequently, both planets would have melted from mutualtidal heating. After escape, Mercury acquired greater tilt and eccentricity, andVenus would have lost more of its spin. Its prolate shape wouldhave been reduced after escape but still maintained. At the pointof escape Mercury would have had a period of revolution of about 40days, and would have retained its spin period, which would also be40 days since it was locked with Venus. But tides raised by the Sunwould slow down its spin to its present 60 days, which gives it a3-2 spin-revolution ratio (3 spins per 2 revolutions, in otherwords, its rotational period is 2/3 its period of revolution, whichis 88 days), because the next stable configuration for such a body(Mercury mass and diameter and degree of prolateness) is thisratio, so it is a predicted outcome of its having been a moon ofVenus. This model, then, explains all the anomalies of both Venus andMercury. * Venus' retrograde rotation is alternately explained by havingbeen tilted upside down by a collision (as probably happened toUranus, which is extremely tilted), or having had its rotationreversed by a similar massive collision at a tangent to its orbit. M.M. Woolfson proposed Mercury was the moon of a giant planet thatcollided with another one. (MORE)
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.
Mercury 0 Venus 0 Earth: 1 Moon (luna) Mars: 2 (Deimos, Phobos) . See related link
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.
No. Venus has none. Neptune has 1 big one (Triton) and a bunch oflittle ones.
