Caption: Animation showing the relative sizes of the Earth and Venus. Earth has a diameter of some 12,742 kilometres, compared to Venus's 12,102 km. This similarity in size has led to it being called Earth's sister planet , although with a surface temperature of nearly 500 degrees Celsius and an atmospheric pressure nearly 100 times that on Earth, the similarity ends at their sizes.
