Less than 25 miles from Fort Davis you may view one of the few “Unsolved Mysteries” of our west Texas skies. National Geographic couldn’t explain them, The University of Texas couldn’t explain them, The TV series “Unsolved Mysteries” could not explain them, but every year since the 19th century… plain ole Texas folks have been explaining them to thousands of onlookers. Are they UFOs? Mirages? Secret military tests? Magnetic energy? Static electricity? Who Knows? Come see ’em and see if you can explain them!
