Venus is our closest neighboring planet, and almost identical in size to Earth. Often the brightest object in the night sky, Venus is actually surrounded by sulfuric acid, which brilliantly reflects light from the sun. To the naked eye Venus often appears to look like a bright “star” however, when viewed through a telescope, it can actually be seen going through its phases, much like moon, and often appears as a crescent or half moon shape.
