There was a recent review of photographs from the Russian Venus-13 probe that landed on the planet Venus in 1982.
One scientist, Leonid Ksanfomaliti, of the Space Research Institute of Russia's Academy of Sciences; published an article in the Solar System Research magazine recently.
In this article that the Times of India posted online, Ksanfomaliti states that there were several objects that quote, "emerge, fluctuate and disappear." Those objects being such things which resembled a "disk", a "black flap", and a "scorpion".
There have been no data proving the existence of life on the planet Venus. Ground temperatures reach up to 464 degrees Celsius.
Quoting Ksanfomaliti, "What if we forget about the current theories about the non-existence of life on Venus, let's boldly suggest that the objects' morphological features would allow us to say that they are living." end quote.
Is this a precusor for Russia to send more probes back to Venus? To this blogger, Russia seems to have better luck sending probes to Venus than they do to Mars.

I have been a life long fanatic for aviation and space related subjects since my parents took me out to a airshow when I was four or five years old.
Solo in a Cessna 150/152 in college, but never was able to get my Private Pilot's license. Love to fly whenever I get a chance to. Until recently, I was into radio control model airplanes. Had to sell them off due to current fincial times.
As for UFOS, I have seen them since the 7th grade. But I haven't witness any more since I turned 30 something - or paid attention enough to see them I should say.
After the Death of Barney Hill, Betty was returning home one night from visiting his grave and she looked up into the night time sky to see a light getting bigger and bigger.
For more details, please read the excellant book CAPTURED! by Stanton T. Friedman, MSc., and Kathleen Marden. This particular encounter one must read directly.
As for the drawing itself, it is done in pencil in a regualr size 8 x 11 size sketchbook. I have been meeaning to post this for months now and finally got around to scanning it and uploading it to the blog on May 29, 2009.
