The lights make their first appearance shortly after sundown. The red light close to the ground is a radio tower 12.4 miles from the viewing station. the two yellow white lights above the radio tower are the infamous Marfa Lights.

A telephoto, notice the red radio tower and the yellow white marfa light just at the ridge line of the mountains in the distance. For reference those mountains in the background are over 60 miles distant. There is no way a car light 60 miles away could be almost as bright as a radio beacon only twelve miles distant.

The best photo of the evening. this is a telephoto of one of the brighter lights to make an appearance. Once again the red on the left is the radio tower. Notice the appearance of what appears to be a tail under the light. This tail gives the impression of movement, but this is an illusion, the light was absolutely motionless during this exposure. Also notice how much brighter than the radio tower this particular light is.

This photo is included for reference. During this exposure I bumped the tripod, shaking it. When compared to the other photos it clearly shows the difference between a moving light and a shaken camera.
