Mysterious Texas Lights Draw Crowds
Mysterious Texas Lights Draw Crowds
For Over a Century, People Have Wondered What They Are
By MICHAEL GRACZYK, AP

MARFA, Texas (July 16) - Nevada has Area 51. New Mexico has Roswell. Texas has the Marfa Lights.

Whatever's out there sparkling or dancing across Mitchell Flat and toward the Chinati Mountains has both befuddled people and attracted them to this remote area east of Marfa for well over a century.

They start converging about dusk on a desolate spot in the West Texas desert with a ridge view and an expanse of some 20 miles of treeless rangeland.

A few bring lawn chairs. Some find a spot on concrete picnic tables. Others lean against a brick wall.
