Dana Howard was one of the mid-1950s contactees who claimed she went to Venus, married a Venusian, and raised a family there.[1]


She said she was attending a seance conducted by medium Bertie Lilly Candler on April 29, 1955, when Candler managed to summon up and materialize an 8-foot-tall (2.4 m), blonde woman from Venus.[2][3] She later claimed she went to Venus, married a Venusian, and raised a family on that planet.[1]

Within a year after the original late-1952 contactee claims of George Adamski, spirit mediums, automatic writing, Ouija boards, and trance channeling had become the standard ways to contact and communicate with the wise and friendly Space Brothers. The 8-foot (2.4 m) blonde, named Diane, provided Howard with the material for most of her published books.[citation needed]

Diane's messages had the usual, stereotypical mid-1950s Theosophical content, including techniques for "mastery of the subconscious," remembering past lives, "direct knowing," and "Elimination, Purification, Rejuvenation and Regeneration or Transmuting." Once the human race evolves to the next level, it will be transferred as a "life-stream" to Venus, for further spiritual development.[citation needed]


She wrote at least eight books:[4]
