Fact of the Day Image Jan. 22nd

Venus, the 2nd planet from the Sun, is an odd planet. That is because Venus spins the other way compared to the other planets, including Earth! That type of rotation is called a retrograde rotation, or backward rotation. There are lots of theories to why, like that Venus was struck by a comet causing it to spin the other way and even that Venus eventually slowed down and started to spin the other way!!
