True. It has become very commercially-oriented unfortunately.

Some historical accounts have more details and specific
descriptions than others, just like UFO reports, etc. The 1880
Surrey, England account I linked to before, written by a noted
scientist of the time, was quite specific though; he had also
done diagrams which Nature didn't include in the magazine. I
would love to find copies of them somewhere.

I didn't say I think that all of the modern complex formations
are necessarily man-made, but do think now that most of them
are. Some, however, have shown the same as-yet unexplained
physical anomalies as in simpler ones. Those are the ones that
still puzzle me.
