The cryptozoology book Live Pterosaurs in America, third edition, in the Chapter Six, “Marfa Lights of Texas,” says, “Hendricks believes, but is not 100% sure, that the truly mysterious lights of Marfa are similar to ball lightning or to atmospheric lights related to the auroraborealis . . . He admitted to me that Marfa Lights last much longer than ball lightning and are seen in all kinds of weather (discounting ball lightning), and he told me what he himself had seen, near the MLVP, unwittingly suggesting a bioluminescent creature. Near the MLVP, Hendricks saw a light come down and move about in the nearby bushes, like an animal would . . . I suspect that Hendricks had witnessed a ropen-like nocturnal flying predator that was chasing a Big Brown Bat.” Later in that chapter of the book (quoting part of a letter from Whitcomb to the scientist James Bunnell), it says, “Why are ML-III not usually seen for many nights in a row? Why are they absent for so many nights in a row? Why do they keep coming back after a few weeks of absence? This is exactly what we would expect of large predators that cover large areas. Could Marfa Lights actually be only a small part of the big picture? I suspect that similar lights might be seen in other areas of southwest Texas and in bordering areas of Mexico.” The nonfiction book Hunting MarfaLights does not give a clear precise explanation for the CE-III flying lights, but it gives us significant data on many sightings, from a scientist who had been studying these phenomena for many years: James Bunnell. What are the “CE-III” flying lights around Marfa, Texas?
