NASA chose the equator of Mars for the Spirit spacecraft. I read somewhere the equator of planets are the most desirable.

Ka Lae AKA South Point, Hawaii. There are many reasons given, for a couple hours of entertainment or education (depending on your persuasion), look into it.

It would be in Wyoming, probably at the Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport (Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) or possibly another return to Devils Tower.

I would say somewhere in Northwest territories, or Baffin Island because it is remote, and from there they can drive to the USA. Not in Russia because Putin will probably start a fight. Or if they want better climate they can land somewhere in Oz, like near Aire's Rock, or Tierra Del Fuego.

Nope!

To be fully honest, I accidentally shut off labels on Google Maps and I thought to myself "So this is what someone sees from outer space" as well as "I don't know what a lot of this is" which were followed by the thought "If I had no idea what any of this was, where would I go?"

This was originally in the City vs. City thread, but it got moved after it left that realm discussion wise.

To weigh in, I think that if I were this alien spaceship, I would land in Millennium Park in Chicago. I would see the concentration of very tall buildings, in the center of the continent, and the massive urban footprint, and probably think it was somewhere important. And then there's a big, conveniently open space right in the middle of all these buildings of obvious civic importance (I'm an alien and I don't understand the public vs. private sector).

Disneyworld. They would blend in, and everyone would think the craft was an exhibit or a ride. As a matter of fact, the aliens could walk around, and no one would think anything of it.

I overheard their 'advance scouts' accidentally talking in English, and they had five top choices.
5) San Francisco during Gay Pride week
4) New Orleans during Mardi Gras
3) Las Vegas during Star Trek SciFi convention
2) Rio De Janeiro during Carnival
1) Dome of the Rock during holy pilgrimage just to get a large contingent of earth's people to think they were "God"

Interestingly, these were the same spots some of the advance scouts had initially landed nearby in their amphibious interstellar shuttle craft.

Of course landing in New York City and addressing the United Nations assembly in full session while recruiting us for 'transport' as part of interstellar 'exchange' program (To Serve Man) as well as the advance scouts enjoying the lunch counter at the metro bus station outside. [cue the Twilight Zone theme music]

BTW, I think I accidentally killed some advance scouts when I threw an axe at what I thought was an NSA drone buzzing around. The others were working as film crew support for some of the summer blockbuster films to gage our malleability of potential perceptive reactions.
