First, I want to say thank you to Danny Cadra, who kindly spent time visiting with us and shared some of his music that is authentically West Texan. We want to thank Danny for his service in the Marine Corps and remind everyone that he has a web site and is available for bookings.
To anyone who has grown up in or around the State of Texas, you know that the Marfa Lights are a part of the lore of our land. What has always intrigued me is that they are in fact a real phenomena. Every few years or so there are scientists or university study groups that announce that they have cracked the case of the Marfa Lights. But when they apply their theories to the actual phenomena, like so many others before them they are quickly proven to not be able to exactly explain what the lights are doing or what causes them.
One of my favorite stories is when the government decided that they would get to the bottom of the Marfa Lights. They took a battalion of Comanche Black Hawk helicopters to the popular viewing sight and waited to chase them down. Our government’s finest flying machines were not capable of so much as even coming up with a theory. In short, the lights play games. In our Free Range Texan Podcast Episode 58 we tell a story of one such event. There are hundreds of stories and hundreds of sightings, and they are always unique.
