Since early 2010, substantial circumstantial evidence has accumulated for the hypothesis that the more-mysterious of the flying lights around Marfa, Texas, are caused by the bioluminescence of a group of flying predators, unclassified by science, that hunts as an intelligent unit, perhaps somewhat similar to the group-hunting behavior or large predators such as some whales and seals. Copyright 2011 Jonathan Whitcomb Science and Marfa Lights Jonathan Whitcomb, another scientist from California, has concentrated on the apparent intelligence, analyzing [info] from those sightings that might relate to the ropen lights of Papua New Guinea. And the results of that analysis might appear more like science fiction than science: [a live pterosaur] bioluminescent flying predators that might be related to ropens, even if that means a living pterosaur interpretation. Never- theless, when extinction dogma is set aside, there is nothing unscientific about the hypothesis that Marfa Lights are caused by the bioluminescence of flying predators. Marfa Lights and Ropens According to the late-2010 press release “Unmasking a Flying Predator in Texas,” a group of “bioluminescent flying predators may be hunting at night and catching a few unlucky ... Bats.” But eyewitnesses who have been brave enough to report a living pterosaur themselves live in various states of the U.S.A., including various parts of Texas and in New Mexico. Although there is only indirect evidence, by late 2010 . . . that possibility [bioluminescent pterosaurs] is so extraordinary that it deserves a thorough scientific investigation.     Marfa Lights in Texas Early in December, 2010, a press release about the Marfa Lights, “Unmasking a Flying Predator in Texas,” spread across the United States, mostly through online news sites. For some readers, this was their first exposure to the possibility of bioluminescent pterosaurs (AKA “pterodactyls”) flying over southwest Texas at night. That press release deals with the specifics of a particular kind of mystery-light sighting: splittings and re-mergings of flying lights,  and the potential for bioluminescence in [a species of predator] hunting bats that catch insects. [Includes info on the nonfiction book “Live Pterosaurs in America.”] Marfa Lights According to the research of James Bunnell, author of the nonfiction book Hunting Marfa Lights, those truly mysterious flying lights do not appear at the same location in this remote high desert area except on consecutive nights. This fits well with the hypothesis of glowing flying creatures that are predators. When intelligent predators have successful hunting, they may return to the same area on the next night (if nocturnal). Marfa Lights do return on consecutive nights, although they do so only rarely, usually being absent for many weeks or even months. But they never return after only about 3-10 days absence.
