Gnomon - time to move on

Your facts about Venus don't match mine. I had the length of day as about 5800 hours, and the length of a Venusian year as 225 Earth days.

Gnomon - time to move on

Sorry, to be more specific, you list the length of Venusian year as 225 days, but the time it takes to go around the sun as 30,685.4 days. You list the length of a Venusian day as 243 Earth days (=5832 hours) in one place and 2802 hours in another place.

Probably a bit of my subbing in there too - all these figures with all these planets, and my brain starts to ooze.

I've changed it to a Venusian day being 5832.4 Earth hours, and the period of revolution about the Sun being 224.7 Earth days.

Hope this is better. smiley - smiley
