Fun fact: Venus in chinese is 金星 which means golden planet
I think it's orange tho
Callicious might know more about it
The atmosphere is responsible for much of the colour iirc- though it's been a few years (I don't know squat about the solar system you know :lol: ) and thus I expect it to look fairly yellowish-orange from our perspective just looking down at it.

The surface is probably whitish bordering to lightish yellow due to sulfur and the like from volcanism, though, if I recall.
