Marfa, Texas

Marfa Mystery Lights Viewing Center


category : Natural Attractions
First reported by early settlers in 1883, the mysterious glowing orbs still defy explanation. Since then the legend, and the surrounding curiosity, has grown. What once was a Texas-based story of interest has captured national recognition.

Thousands of visitors flock yearly to the small desert plain to witness the Ghost Lights. Few leave disappointed. And few have the same story. Some say the lights are pure white and constant. Others say they are colorful and mobile. Some never see more than three at a time. Others have reported noticing up to 10 dancing in the desert air. The only consensus: They definitely exist.

So why not just grab a handful of rocket scientists and go out and study them? Quite simply, no one can get near enough. Those who've tried leave frustrated, as the mystery lights disappear when approached.

The new viewing center, expanded to eight acres, features a viewing deck, rest room facilities, information about the Marfa Lights, local flora and fauna and more.
