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.
