Id say its because people go outside alot more in the warmer months stay outside for longer as well as stay out well after dusk and often well after its gone dark.
So more time for them to see things they might not normally recognize and mistake as UFO's.
Not saying they all are, but hey, expect an on rush of orange orb (ie chineses lanterns) sightings as barbeque season gets under way.

The earth has a funny condition called seasons. And we seem to experience them at different times, if we happen to exist on a different spot on the earth to other people.
So what is it about a small populated expanse of land that claims the winning lottery ticket for ufos?
"Car'n luv, lets go to earth."
"Nah, it's winter in the US, too cold.."
"what about Austr....."
"I SAID IT'S WINTER IN THE US, TOO COLD."
I don't think that's the sort of conversation they're having... Hmm
big planet, but aliens don't like the heat, or the cold makes them jittery... i unno..

From the OP, the times mentioned would seem to coincide with times that children, and especially teens are typically on break away from school.
There's certainly an increase in ATS participation when bored teen aged youths take to their summer holidays.
There's certainly an increase in hoax videos on youtube during this time as well.
It'd be foolish not to consider this data point as partial factor.

for most people sky watching sure, but i'm used to watching in the dead of freezing winter for many hours of the pre dusk until after 1:am...and for your information, military jets don't chase Chinese lanterns nor do satellites in pairs or triplets drop rapidly from the sky vertically then zip away
Ive seem many cool ones but the most unique one that gave me a thrill was a shooting star that zipped across the sky heading south at (several 1000 miles an hour) then within a few seconds, zipped back north and directly right in front of me made a hard east arching pattern and blinked out....it was a total rush seeing something moving that fast and pull that maneuver
