During their flight through the Venus atmosphere the Vega 1 and Vega 2 balloon craft measured the pressure and temperature of the ambient medium, the vertical wind-velocity component (relative to the gondola), the cloud-layer backscatter coefficient, the mean illumination level, and the number and time of possible lightning flashes. In addition, the ground radio telescope network measured the balloon positions and drift velocities by the differential VLBI technique; these data are now being processed.
