    Marfa lights: Authentic UFOs!!

    Marfa Lights Viewing Area, Texas

    Aficionados of UFOs (Unknown Flying Objects) and other unexplained phenomena, this is for you!! At this spot, a few miles East of the town of Marfa, globes of lights can sometimes be seen floating above the desert at night. They appear, dissappear, split and converge. They look about the size of very big bright stars, in front of hills at the Southwestern horizon. And no, nobody has found an explanation yet!!
    There is a viewing area along I-90 with a shelter with posters on the phenomena, tables, seats and telescopes. Look towards the Southwestern horizon where there is a flashing red beacon. The Marfa lights generally appear to the right and left of the flashing red light.

    nature: A sixpack under the stars

    Not much choice of nightlife in this desolate region. Grab a sixpack of beer from the concessionaire and watch the spectacular night sky. At 7000 feet without light pollution, you have a rare glimpse of our beautiful universe. It is an activity of which I cannot tire.

    sunsets are worth the price of admission

    It is dry and windy in west Texas, therefore, a lot of dirt and dust particals are blown into the lower atmosphere resulting in brilliant sunsets.
