How long is a year on Venus?
The planet Venus takes 224.7 Earth days to orbit the Sun. This means than a Venus year is a little more than seven months long. Interestingly, Venus’ day is slightly longer than its year, and the planet revolves around its axis backwards compared to all the other planets in the Solar System, so that Venus is very close to being tidally locked. In a few hundred million years, that process will complete as tidal forces gradually slow Venus’s rotation enough that it ends up like our own Moon, with the same face always facing the Sun.
