EL PASO - Remember those strange lights over El Paso that caused such a stir in October? The mystery continues to grab national attention.

There's a show on the SyFy network called "Fact or Faked" that breaks down weird events nationwide. An episode has been airing all month investigating those strange lights that appeared in El Paso's night sky. Footage shot by our own photographer, Ram Moreno, has attracted more than 860,000 views on YouTube.

The paranormal re-creators prepared themselves for an out-of-this-world experience. The mission? Investigate a strange light formation that The Amigo Airsho takes credit for. There are still some doubters out there. First the team set off balloons, but to their dismay, it was no match. So they set up a rocket to set off flares and try to re-create the lights. But it's not until they try an experiment with three skydivers who have flares strapped to their ankles that they call it case closed. This maneuver is very similar to one used by the team in the Amigo Airshow.

This isn't the first time the show has investigated the paranormal in the borderland. An older episode shows some mysterious sand circles discovered in El Paso. Here's that link:

Be more specific when you say, "UFO". Sure, the lights are unidentified but that doesn't necessarily mean they're alien. The government does keep a lot from us but, I don't think space aliens would come all this way and decide to hover over El Paso of all places!

ok you stupid hippie..i bet your high on drugs about 20 hours a day. Thats the most ignorant thing you could have said.

It was UFO's.... same think happend in New York 3 days earlier, and it's not a coincidence. Face it people we are not alone, and the goverment is going to keep the truth from us.

I beleive you i live in the east side of el paso and i was starting to see three strange like lights early in the morning then they just vanish in the sky. I think it is a secret fedral milatary test of aircraft that the government is trying to hide from us or maymby it is another form of life but is right, we are not alone.
