Venus is a terrestrial planet, and is the second closest orbiting body to the sun in the Sol system. Venus is covered with an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of carbon dioxide, preventing its surface from being seen from space in visible light. Due to its size and mass, Venus is often regarded as Earth's "sister planet".
