From a chapter of Live Pterosaurs in America
Near the MLVP, Hendricks saw a light come down and move about in the nearby bushes, like
an animal would. In the morning, he searched those bushes but found nothing. I suspect that
Hendricks had witnessed a ropen-like nocturnal flying predator that was chasing a Big Brown
Bat. . . .
On May 7th and 8th, 2003, extraordinary events were photographed. On the first night, lights
appeared between 9:00 and 10:40. The first light was too brief for Bunnell to photograph, but
two more appeared at about the same location. I was intrigued at Bunnell’s description of how
those two lights behaved, for it seemed consistent with my hypothesis that Marfa Lights are
made by flying predators with extreme bioluminescence, like the ropen of the southwest
Pacific but used for a different purpose: to attract insects that attract the Big Brown Bat. . . .
So why did the two lights of May 7th go out before reaching the original location? Think about
it. Several bats are grabbing a few insects while also keeping track of a nearby dancing,
glowing bat-eater. Is it really a free lunch? The other two bat-eaters, having turned off their
glow, are streaking into that area at high speed, relying on the dancing bat-eater to hold the
attention of the bats. Who survives? Some bats, some ropens, some insects.

Mystery Lights of Marfa, Texas
Sometimes they seem to dance or behave in
other equally strange ways, like they were
guided by intelligence. What are they, these
mysterious “dancing ghosts?”
Scientists like James Bunnell have puzzled
over the strange phenomena, even though
many scientific tests and observations have
been made over the years.
Now a new hypothesis, one based upon a
careful examination of various human ex-
periences, comes up: glowing pterosaurs.
