You say water is common in our solar system? That's news to me.
Two teams of astronomers have discovered the largest and farthest reservoir of water ever detected in the universe. The water, equivalent to 140 trillion times all the water in the world's ocean, surrounds a huge, feeding black hole, called a quasar, more than 12 billion light-years away
What's more - is that Ceres potentially has more fresh water than on Earth.
While Uranus is the third largest planet in the Solar System, it is significantly smaller than Jupiter and Saturn. It is theorized that Uranus has a rocky core, padded by a mantle of liquid water, methane, and ammonia all trapped in an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium
The fastest spinning object in the Solar System is Haumea, a dwarf planet beyond Neptune.
What makes this world mysterious is the "fresh ice" that covers the surface.
The surface of Ganymede consists of rocks, clay, ice, and other organic materials.
Ice crystal geysers on Enceladus' surface shoot powerful bursts of water vapor into the atmosphere. These water vapor geysers are proof of significant geological activity
There's an ocean under there. Scientists have since detected a global ocean swirling beneath the frozen crust. And they think the ocean is warm enough to support life. For that reason, Europa gives us the best chances of finding life outside our own planet.
Neptune, along with Uranus, are considered "ice giants." The name is appropriate since they do have large quantities of water ice mixed in with other gases.

I just find it hard to believe they would have much interest in Earth.
I will try to see it from their point of view (the aliens). The Universe is unlimited what would compel them to search our area of the galaxy? Out of trillions of stars. If Life is abundant in the Universe what would make us so special that they would need come visit us. How would they know where to search?
To date there has been a lack of true physical evidence.
The Roswell Crash which accelerated interest in this subject, has yielded no physical proof regarding aliens.
I'm pretty sure NASA knows nothing about aliens.
There no legit photos of Aliens or their space craft. All I see is a bunch of misidentified human aircraft.
I don't know how people come to the conclusion that they are our space brothers..Or that they are perfectly harmless. And they will just "Enlighten Us, Or share their Spiritual Knowledge."
