Venus looks a lot like Earth. Venus looks a lot like Earth. There are mountains, valleys and even active volcanoes - except there's no ocean. One thing to keep in mind when watching a sunset on Venus is that Venus spins backwards so the sun rises in the west and sets in east, which is the opposite of Earth.

But you could have done something like after talking about heading back to the woods you could have done ,a burst of light blinding me then a bang! My side hits the front of the vehicle, suddenly I'm on my side on the rocky ground, I look at the stars, then they all go out. Or maybe not. :/ Well yeah, But I was trying to make it like an animal was thinking it. So I didn't wanna use car, vehicle or anything like that.
