Number of Venus moons

How many Venus moons are there?

0

Not too many people know that there are 166 recognized moons in our Solar System. Keep in mind that the Earth only has one.  Believe it or not, Jupiter has the most with 63 moons confirmed as of 2009.   Venus has zero moons.  Can you believe that Venus and Mercury are the only two planets that do not have a single moon in orbit about them?  It is believed that after a colossal impact, Venus began to spin in retrograde and a moon was formed.  Unfortunately, it did not reach a distance where it would be in stable orbit, so impacted the surface again.
