Hi Martin, I can't think of any that are periodic in this fashion, but I recall that the plane groundings (and resulting lack of contrails) after 9-11 had a noticeable effect on U.S. weather, primarily an increase the diurnal temperature variation. If a weekly periodicity were to be found in UFO sightings, I would say that's a pretty strong argument that the phenomenon is anthropogenic (or at least that subset that is driving the periodic signal), since weeks are a human convention, unlike, say, the lunar month.
