Some folks describe them as flickering lanterns, while others believe they are spirits reaching out from beyond. Despite scientific investigations and numerous eyewitness accounts, the cause of these Marfa Lights remains uncertain.


Bragg Lights (Saratoga)

In the rural town of Saratoga, a phenomenon known as the Bragg Lights glows in the surrounding marshes and forests. These lights, named after the nearby Bragg Road, have puzzled the locals for years. Folks describe them as floating orbs or flickering lanterns that mysteriously appear at night and then vanish without a trace. Some believe the lights are the spirits of long-departed railroad workers, while others think there's more of a natural explanation. Despite many investigations, the Bragg Lights continue to baffle visitors.


Anson Lights

Not too far from Abilene in the heart of Jones County is the small town of Anson. It holds a chilling secret: the Anson Lights. These mysterious lights have perplexed residents and visitors for decades. They appear as distant glowing orbs, hovering in the darkness. There are those who say they are the restless spirits of Native American warriors, while others think they involve natural gases or electrical phenomena.
