Sept. 4-6, Marfa, Tex.
For some unexplained reason, the night sky over Marfa has glowed eerily at least since the 1840s. Residual Stardust from Liz Taylor and James Dean filming Giant in the desert town in 1956? Or George Bush’s thousand points of light? Whatever, there’ll be a parade and a roundtable (all welcome) to discuss the phenomenon.
