Venus is the second planet from the binary star at the centre of the SOL star system, the sun. Orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days. It has no natural satellite (moon) though the asteroid 2002 VE68 presently maintains a quasi-orbital relationship with it, which becomes relevant in relation to the explanations presented in contact 150. Its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°. It is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.
After Earth's Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky (of Earth), reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6 (in the night sky), bright enough to cast shadows under the right conditions. Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset (as seen on Earth), for which reason it has been referred to by ancient cultures as the Morning Star or Evening Star. Such as the Mayan culture, even though its a planet, not a star, nor a planet-planet (such as Jupiter).
Venus is a terrestrial planet, which means its primarily composed of silicate rocks and metals. Its sometimes called Earth's "sister planet" by academics in the current age and level of understanding because of their similar size, gravity, and bulk composition, furthermore pointing out that Venus is both the closest planet to Earth and the planet closest in size to Earth in the star system. While the Plejaren reference the now destroyed planet Malona as Earth's sister planet. Current understanding additionally points out that it has also been shown to be very different from Earth in other respects undermining the academic conclusions. It has the densest atmosphere of the four terrestrial planets in this star system, consisting of more than 96% carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth's. With a mean surface temperature of 735 K (Kelvin) (462 °C; 863 °F), making it by far the hottest planet in the Solar System (Sol star system). It has no carbon cycle to lock carbon back into rocks and surface features, nor does it have any organic life to absorb it into biomass. Venus is shrouded by an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulphuric acid, preventing its surface from being seen from space via the visible light spectrum at least. Venus may have possessed oceans in the past but these would have vaporized as the temperature rose due to a runaway greenhouse effect (Also see Akart). The water has most probably photo-dissociated and because of the lack of a planetary magnetic field, the free hydrogen has been swept into interplanetary space by the solar wind from the local star. Venus's surface is a dry desert scape interspersed with slab-like rocks and periodically refreshed by volcanism.
In Block 13 of the Contact Notes in German (page 2542): On the 238th contact, 18th May, 1991, Ptaah told Billy that there existed a planet circling the Sun where today Venus has its orbit. It was a planet called "Skill" (as called by the Plejaran). It was 6,100 kilometres in diameter, which is roughly half the size of Earth. Earth is 12,756.2 kilometres.
- Planet Skill collided with the Destroyer Comet and was hurled into SOL, our sun.
- Skill means "Oede" in German, that in English means: "desertion, desolateness, abandonment, barrenness, forsaken, neglected.
Which incidentally fits the description of current day Venus, in the same orbit. Which is to be expected for any planet with a diameter of 12,104 km at a distance of 108,200,000 km from a star (the sun) with a diameter of 1,391,000 km. Also see Transit of Venus 
Titius-Bodes law, often considered a rule rather than a natural law but that has yet to be thoroughly tested on other star systems nor revised with the futurological understanding of Dark Matter (the 5th fundamental force of the universe, as described in contact 544). Is a formula that indicates the bodies in an orbital system, orbit at semi-major axes in a function of planetary sequence. Which reflect a combination of orbital resonance, resonance-driven commensurabilities and a shortage of degrees of freedom. This particular hypothesis supports the concept presented in contact 150 of Venus having been repulsed into its current orbit from its original orbit around Uranus. As this particular formula places it at 0.7 AU (Astronomical Units) while its actual distance is currently 0.72 AU. While all planetary orbits are elliptical, Venus's orbit is the closest to circular, with an eccentricity of less than 0.01. All the planets of the Solar System orbit the Sun in an anti-clockwise direction as viewed from above the Sun's north pole. Most planets also rotate on their axes in an anti-clockwise direction, but Venus rotates clockwise (retrograde rotation) once every 243 Earth days—the slowest rotation period of any planet (there are 224.7 days in a Venusian year).
In this way Titius-Bodes law appears to reflect the turbulent past of all the planets in our star system. With the exception of Earth and Jupiter which are exactly where this formula predicts them to be. Earth's relative stability up until this time may have something to do with the events that proceeded the destruction of Atlantis. While Jupiter being the largest and a gas giant may explain why it has been less affected by cosmic influences. While it interestingly points towards Ceres, a rock now in the orbit of where the planet Malona was destroyed. Uranus in contact 150 being pushed out of its orbit of 19.6 AU to its current 19.2 AU by the same force that brought Venus it to its current orbital rotation to replace the planet Skill found in the 238th contact. Which presumably had an elliptic orbit of 0.7 AU having become accustomed to the binary dark star over the duration of this planets evolution unlike Venus. While Neptune and Plutos inconsistency with the formula may again have something to do with this same star, our suns dark binary star, as discussed in contact 544.
Venus in contact 31 is flown past in a beamship when Billy jokes about photographing a Venusian, which spurs a conversation about fraudulent contactees, because no one lives there. Its another desolate and uninhabitable planet.
Chronology Of Venus
- 6,339.5 BCE - The Destroyer rips Venus out of its orbit around Uranus and "tows" it behind itself in the direction of the earth's orbital path.
- 6,104 BCE - Venus breaks into earth's orbital path which disturbs Venuses rotation in such a way that a new rotational period is created around the sun. Bringing gigantic earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods and elemental storms to Earth at that time.
- 4,006 BCE - Venus crosses again into the earth's path and lightly disturbs the earth again, but without bringing about large catastrophes this time.
- 3,545 BCE - Venus finally stabilizes itself and sets itself into its own path around the sun.
