Russian scientist claims 1982 pictures shows 'life on Venus'
Prof Ksanfomaliti, from the Moscow-based Space Research Institute, analysed photographs taken by a Soviet probe that landed on the planet's surface.
The 79 year-old claimed the pictures, taken by the probe Venus-13 in 1982, show a giant scorpion-styled insect that he claimed proved to life on the scorching second-closest planet to the sun.
But the views of the member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, published in Solar System Research, have been cast into doubt.
Experts say the features described as a disc and a scorpion appear to change locations from one photo to the next.
Prof Ksanfomaliti said the images show a scorpion shaped body, a disc and a "black flap" which apparently move as the probe's camera records the scene.
They all "emerge, fluctuate and disappear" explained Prof 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," he tells the magazine.
No records have previously been found of life on Venus, which has a surface temperature of 464C and gravity 0.9 times more powerful than Earth's.
But Jonathon Hill, a research technician and mission planner at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University, cast doubt on the claims.
The man who processes many of the images taken during NASA's Mars missions, said the higher-resolution versions of the Venera 13 images show that the crablike object is actually a mechanical component, not a living creature.
The same object shows up in a photograph taken by an identical landing probe, Venera 14, which landed nearby on Venus. - telegraph

On this night I had some buddies of mine over for a visit. I live in the out skirts of town in the open country farm area. There were four of us there. It was a very nice warm summer night. I had my guitar out side and plugged into an amp and was playing some tunes for my friends. We were having some beer's and just enjoying the night since it was the weekend. The sky was very clear and the stars were all around. My friends had been there going on about six hours and it was getting to be about 2:00 a.m. in the morning. My mother and step father were out of town and I was staying home alone. We had dairy cows at that time and grew corn. The sky was still clear and all of a sudden the wind started blowing as if a storm was approaching but there wasnt any clouds as we could see. The cows in the barn started acting funny and making noise, like some thing was bothering them. One of my friends then said he was ready to leave because he didnt want to get hit with that storm he thought was comming and needed to get home. So he looked up at the sky and said. That's so strange because he did'nt see any clouds or anything but the the way the wind was acting it should have looked stormy. But he got in his car then pulled out of my long drive way we have and drove off. Well right after he left my other two friends decided they were gonna leave also. As they were pulling out of the drive I noticed something big and dark above one of the three corn bins we have and was just hovering above it. I quickly started flashing the house lights on and off to get them to come back and to look at what I was seeing but they never even noticed the thing and just drove off honking the horn good bye. I then turned my attention back to the object and started to walk towards the corn bin were it was hovering. I noticed it was very large and was triangle shaped. it looked bigger than the corn bin. It had some lights kinda pulsating around it. I thought what the heck. I had a beer in my hand as I walked up to it,( no I wasnt drunk ), I was seeing this thing. The beer was in my right hand because im right handed and always use that hand. Just as I was staring at this thing, BAM! this light hit's me like a spot light, very bright. I can't see anything now. Just that light. After I was hit with that light all I remember was the light going back up into the UFO and it just took off like very fast and was gone. Now this is the strange part. This all happened at around 2:00 a.m. and was dark outside of course. But now as im standing there the sun is comming up and it's just becomming dawn. And the beer I was holding was now in my left hand and I swear that I never switch it. Seem's four hours had passed and I dont remember what happened in between. I feel I was taken aboard or something, and then put back down. I have had bad dreams since then and always about being on some strange table being looked at by aliens. I just wanted to share this story since I feel maybe this may have happened to some one else perhaps and to let them know they are not alone. Thank you very much for reading my report. C. M. from Illinois. - MUFON CMS

My friend and I were scoping out a house where the occult practices from a fairly good distance, about 100 yards off. There was a field near by where cows are kept to feed on the field during the winter, and they were dead quite. So was everything else in the valley. Not a single sound. Except for a demonic roar, that was multi-pitched, and would come from about a hundred yards off about every other minute or so. We didnt really care though.....because we suspected we were well camouflaged and it was late enough at night to evade, which we had already done that night, if necessary. We were overlooking an embankment about 15 yards apart from each other. He was ahead of me. I was looking at him to get the go ahead to move because our presence was already known there. he suddenly froze, then started sprinting in my direction. Under his breath he told me to run, and run we did, for about 1.5 miles. Along the way we could hear the multi-pitched voice call to its buddies, and they would call back, in their multi-pitched voices. When we finally got out and got to have a cigarette, he told me what happened. The house we were checking had company. As ----- was checking out the house, a 8.0 to 8.5 foot tall cloaked being came to the window and looked directly at him. He said he froze from its stare, and then saw it make a go for the door of the house. He made for it when that happened and we both ran. He said the thing wasnt human, and wasnt very happy.....We didnt speak an entire word on the ride back. The feeling down there is death, and you have to accept it to face these guys. worst trepidation of my life...no joke. When we got back to __________, his eyes started to bleed. They bleed for about the next full day. Couldnt really find anything on the internet to collaborate this experience, but we did meet another group of 2 from the area that had the same exact thing happen to them, eyes bleeding and all. I have suspect evidence to believe that it was reptilian, from the near abduction instances from the triangles down there, and other personal witness of reptilians in the area. - MUFON CMS
85-year-old woman fights off moose with a shovel
She may be 85 years old and weigh under 100 pounds, but an Alaska woman is being hailed as a hero after fighting off a moose. Dorothea Taylor was waiting in a pickup truck as her husband, George Murphy, 82, went to round up their dogs from their morning run when she heard the pets barking loudly.
She got out of the truck, saw a moose strike something with its hooves — and immediately knew something was wrong. "I thought he was trying to kill Fellar, the old dog," she said. She raced back to her vehicle, grabbed a shovel and took a swing at the moose, who was attacking the dog.
With a few more swings — and the help of a dog — she managed to get the moose to back away. "Then I saw it wasn't Fellar the moose was after at all," she said. "He was striking over the top of Fellar to get George." She immediately tried to stanch her husband’s bleeding as a good Samaritan dialed 911.
George Murphy was rushed to an Anchorage hospital, where he is resting with a gash to his head and a few broken ribs. And he couldn't be more proud of his wife of 40 years. "Jeez, that was a pretty hard thing for anyone to do, to walk up on a moose like that," he said. "Heck, all she had was a shovel."
Blood bubbles out of drains in Polish town
After bubbling out through holes in the covers, the blood formed a river of red that flowed along a road in the Polish town forming large bloody puddles.
An investigation revealed that the blood had come from a meat processing plant and had seeped onto the streets because of a blocked drain.
“Police were called and we are investigating to find who is responsible for this,” said Janusz Matrejek, a spokesman for the regional police headquarters.
Confronted with pools of blood on their streets locals reacted with horror.
“There are two schools on the street where a large amount of blood was flowing,” wrote one angry resident on a news website. “The blood was also heading towards a local market. When you consider public health this situation is appalling.”
People also questioned as to how the blood had managed to leave the meat processing plant without any form of treatment, despite possible environmental risks.
A spokesman for the municipal authorities said the situation was now under control and that the blood had been removed from the streets. - telegraph
