Question: What famous West Texas atmospheric phenomenon has been attributed to paranormal activity and has been referenced in a number of songs and TV shows?

Answer: The Marfa Lights. The mysterious glowing orbs that appear to dance on the horizon during sunset or sunrise are most likely caused by the bending of light as it travels through air with different densities, similar to a mirage. The first recorded observation was in 1883 by cowhand Robert Reed Ellison.
