Mars and Venus extraterrestrial characteristics, a helpful summary: According to www.world-famous.com—"the world's most paranormal site!"—Venusians exist on an astral plane, where they enjoy the benefits of circular vision and telepathy. Aside from having pointy, elongated hands and unusual bone structures near their eyes, Venusians who have adapted Earth bodies are indistinguishable from other humans. As for Martians, photographic evidence reveals blurry, humanoid-shaped beings that suspiciously resemble ordinary boulders (but are probably aliens).
