When did Mikhail Lomonosov discover Venus?
Mikhail Lomonosov did not "discover" Venus. Venus is often the third brightest object in the sky (with the first two being the Sun and Moon); it's been known since prehistoric times. What Lomonosov did was guess that Venus had an atmosphere (correctly, as it turns out; Venus does in fact have an atmosphere). He based this opinion on telescopic observations of Venus. So his name is connected with Venus, but he didn't by any means discover it.
