Venus - the PLANET - from Sydney, Australia.

Venus, the PLANET, was named after the Romanised version of Kythera's goddess - Aphrodite.

I regard Venus as Kythera's planet.

It is fitting that the occurence of the transit of Venus across the face of the Sun, has focused the attention of the entire world onto Kythera's planet.
