What Marfa Lights Probably Aren't
According to one reviewer of the book "Hunting Marfa Lights"

"Mr. Bunnell has spent years of work and considerable expense (purchasing and putting together equipment and housing for it) investigating the mysterious lights ("ML") around Marfa, Texas. This book gives more than just a description of his experiences, interesting as they are: It gives us an objective evaluation of some of the most popular hyphtheses on the what and why of these lights. The pros and cons of different origination-suggestions do not give us a precise and undisputed explanation for what causes them, but it shows us how mysterious they really are."
