about 10-15 minutes from the center of town, the Marfa Lights Viewing Area is located off east highway 90. The viewing area has an amazing view of the Mitchell Flat. At night, you may get the chance to see the lights dancing and darting around the horizon. We were lucky enough to see the lights, which were unforgettable. According to most reports, the lights are not visible every night, so we were lucky to have witnessed them. If you don't get to see them, don't worry. The night sky over the viewing area is so beautiful, there aren't enough words to describe the magnificence. We were there on a night of total darkness, allowing the stars to just jump out at us. We drove for twelve hours to get to Marfa, and the views of the night sky alone were completely worth it.
