As far as unexplained events, the Marfa Lights in west Texas.
"The Marfa Lights, mysterious and unexplained lights that have been reported in the area for over one hundred years, have been the subject of many
theories. The first recorded sighting of the lights was by rancher Robert Ellison in 1883. Variously described as campfires, phosphorescent minerals,
swamp gas, static electricity, St. Elmo's Fire, and "ghost lights," the lights reportedly change colors, move around, and change in intensity.
Scholars have reported over seventy-five local folk tales dealing with the unknown phenomenon. - 1988"
