The planet Venus follows Mercury and never deviates more than 45 degrees from the sun, nor is it ever in opposition to the sun. By reason of a greater orbit than Mercury’s, it completes its periodic motion somewhat more slowly within seven and a half months, or more exactly, 224 days, 17 hours, and 26 minutes. Its speed, however, is greater than that of the planets surrounding it.
