Venus, the second planet from the Sun, comes closest to Earth roughly every 583 days, or about 19 months.

Venus, our closest planetary neighbour, is similar to Earth in many aspects. However, it takes only 225 days to revolve around the Sun. Secondly; the surface is very hot due to nearness to the Sun.
