    I was wondering the same thing.  On that guys website he had a picture of a
    dome owned by SETI, so someone is definitely making observations!

    Thanks Gerhard.
    
    I appreciate the reply.
    
    When I did my first H-A analysis of the S pole flares some years ago, I just
    
    happened to hit a time when there was a lot of them. I then assumed that 
    they would always be visible in great numbers with many bright ones per 24 
    period.
    
    I wonder of their frequency changes with the sun's changes in altitude? I 
    also wonder if they interfere with any astronomical observations that are 
    made down there...assuming someone does make those kinds of observations. I 
    will try to find out.
