1 Quotation from Patrick Moore

Venusian n. 2 1972 P. Moore Can You Speak Venusian?: A Guide to Independent Thinkers (1973) xvi. 167 Mr. Byron is one of the few Earthmen privileged to be able to speak, and write, languages of other planets. He is fluent in Venusian, Plutonian and Krügerian—the latter being the tongue employed by the people who live on a planet moving round the far-away red dwarf star Krüger 60. In our previous forays we have always found extra-terrestrials who can communicate with us. True, Allingham’s Martian did not speak English, but semaphore provided a good substitute; George Adamski’s original visitors were coy, but when they got to know him better they showed themselves to be completely fluent.
