This piece is part of my Marfa Roadtrip Series
The Marfa Lights are drawing visitors from around the globe for a chance to see these unexplained phenomena. Accounts of the strange spectacle just east of Marfa began during the 19th Century and continue to this day.
The mystery lights are sometimes red, sometimes blue, sometimes white, and usually appear randomly throughout the night, no matter the season or the weather.
While the source of the mystery lights is still a point of contention, the show goes on. By most reports, they are whimsical and friendly; other witnesses maintain that they are ever distant and aloof; and some sources claim they zoom across the plains at terrifying speed, only to whip back around and dissolve before hitting the dumbstruck viewer.
Anyway we didn’t see them on our visit but the evening skies where stunning and yes I believe they are to be seen, it is just about being there at the right time.
