  • The viewing area was convenient but as with many locations in this area, only marked once you were almost on top of it. Luckily we had gone to Marfa earlier in the day so we kind of knew where it was....  more »
  • Went about 9:00 pm to the viewing station. And ther they were dancing above the horizon. Then just sat and watched the stars. 
  • A short drive out of Marfa to see this phenom. No one knows what causes them and they are not always visible. You can see them on clear nights. We spent about an hour watching them and it was fascinat...  more »
  • The experience was one I will not forget. We were fortunate to be there on a night when there was a lot of activity. I was mesmerized. The photos I took with the camera on my phone were absolutely amazing when I enlarged them. No two lights were the same size or shape. I have no idea what they are but they are an experience. The viewing area is easy to access. It is clean and has ample parking. It has a display that gives some history about the phenomenon of Marfa Lights.
  • Saturday night viewing at around 9 PM. It's worth the stop. The place has ample parking, surprisingly neat restrooms, and a sitting area.
  • This is a waste of time. Don't bother. You're looking at car headlights off in the distance. TWO scientific studies done by TWO separate universities with specialized equipment confirms these lights aren't anything more than headlights along US 67. If you're here to stargaze it's probably decent.
  • Outstanding...very enjoyable experience. Like another review, I too saw a Trump bumper sticker but it didn't stress me out. We didn't see any hillery stickers and that was good.
  • We loved it we went in March and came prepared we took blankets and lawn chairs it was cold. Our kids enjoyed it playing in the dirt, catching bugs, watch the sunset, and saw the dancing lights.
