Did you know that Venus is the only plant to rotate counter clockwise?
Our neighbouring planet Venus is an oddball in many ways. For starters, it spins in the opposite direction from most other planets, including Earth, so that on Venus the sun rises in the west. Not that it happens often: a day on Venus lasts a little more than 243 Earth-days, actually making it longer than a year on Venus, which is only about 224 Earth-days long.
Current theory holds that Venus initially spun in the same direction as most other planets and, in a way, still does: it simply flipped its axis 180 degrees at some point. In other words, it spins in the same direction it always has, just upside down, so that looking at it from other planets makes the spin seem backward.
