It has a diameter of about 4,880 kilometres (3,032 miles). There are two moons in the Solar System that are bigger than Mercury, but the Earth’s Moon is only about a 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) smaller. In surface area, When the sun rises over Mercury, it warms from -150°C (-238°F) to 370°C (698°F) 44 it’s about ten per cent that of Earth (75 million square kilometres or 29 million square miles), or about twice the size of Asia if you could flatten it out. Finally, in volume and mass Mercury is about five per cent that of Earth.
Below the cloud layer is a layer of carbon dioxide, mixed with a bit of nitrogen. Pressure on the surface is 92 times that of Earth’s surface. Although Venus is further away from the Sun than Mercury, its atmosphere creates a greenhouse effect that results in an incredibly hot temperature of 460 degrees Celsius (860 degrees Fahrenheit), while Mercury’s maximum temperature is just over 420 degrees Celsius (788 degrees Fahrenheit). The temperature stays the same most of the time, and there are winds of up to 300 kilometres per hour (186 miles per hour).
The rarest of predictable events in our Solar System involve Venus. Known as transits of Venus, this only happens once every 243 years in a pattern. A transit is somewhat like a solar eclipse, occurring when the planet is between the Earth and the Sun. 5 years between them. The odd pattern has to do with the relationship between the orbital periods of the two planets. Usually they happen in pairs, but not always. During a transit, Venus looks like a tiny black disc passing across the Sun’s surface.
