It is always said to go with your first instinct. I was going to put Earth for #18 but then changed my mind and put Venus. One of those instances where self doubt comes a-knocking.

An easy mistake.

I thought the question might be a little contentious.

David Attenborough did a TV nature series called 'Blue Planet', about Earth,

which, if you had watched it would have been a giveaway.
