If a flag is not lighted at night, it is in violation of the US Flag Regulations.

Well.....IF we placed a Flag there then technically the direct area HAS been claimed as US soil. That is the purpose of a Flag.

The Soviets/Russians claimed previously unreachable areas of Antarctica by dropping darted Flags out of low flying planes!
We Americans did it first with Admiral Byrd.
