The Solar System consists of the Sun and eight planets. These planets in accordance to their closeness to the Sun are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
A day on planet Venus is longer than a year there. Venus is the second closest planet to the Sun. All the planets revolve the sun in the same direction. The time taken for a planet to revolve around the sun is a year. The planets also rotate round the Sun in the same direction except Uranus and Venus.
Subsequently, the time taken for each planet to complete a rotation on its axis is a day.
A day on Venus is 243 Earth days while a year there is 225 Earth days. This is because this planet's rotation around its axis is very slow compared to other planets resulting into a day longer than its year.
Another amazing fact about this planet is that the Sun rises in the west and sets in the east because it rotates in a direction opposite the other planets excluding Uranus.
