Did you know that Venus rotates the opposite way than the earth so if you were standing on Venus the Sun would appear to rise in the West and set in the East?
Did you know that because of its slow rotation it takes Venus 243 days to rotate but only 224 days to orbit the sun? That means a day on Venus is longer than a year!

Jupiter has 67 natural satellites including 4 large moons that orbit it's surface.
Jupiter is the fastest rotating planet in our solar system, rotating in just over 10 hours. The speed of its rotation results in a slight bulge at its equator that is visible with a telescope.
It takes Jupiter 11.86 earth years to orbit the sun once.
The Voyager II spacecraft recorded wind speeds of 1,300 miles per hour when passing by Neptune
It takes Neptune 164.79 earth years to orbit the sun one time!
