  4. 4. Mercury Temperature can reach 800°C in the daytime and drop to -180°C at night. Mean radius: 2,439.7 km Number of moons: 0 One day: 59 Earth days One year: 88 Earth days
  5. 5. Venus Venus spins backwards. This means that the sun rises in the west and sets in the east on the planet. Mean radius: 6,051.8 km Number of moons: 0 One day: 243 Earth days One year: 225 Earth days
