No evidence for anything ETI related. Stop making that your first port of call
The earth may have been nearly frozen at some point in the past, but what makes you think the moon caused it? I'm not sure of the cause, but I don't see the moon as a likely cause. This source suggests the freezing wasn't as severe as some hypothesize though it was more severe than previous glaciation cycles, and low solar luminosity might have been the cause:

The moon used to be much closer and once caused an extinction event, frozen planet, and pulls us to a 33 1/3 tilt axis giving us that horrid wobble that some people can feel in contact with it and some can't.
Again, I don't know the cause, but low solar lumonity sounds more plausible than just saying "the moon caused it".
A lower solar luminosity may have played a role in lowering snow line elevations and displacing glaciation into latitudes lower than those of Phanerozoic glaciations.
I see some odd looking bugs from time to time but bugs are bugs. What really looked alien to me though was some of the creatures that washed up during the 2004 tsunami. I suppose being forced to the surface may have distorted them from their deeper water habitat but some of the creatures looked very unusual. A few of them are shown here:
As far as aliens? Go out side see a life form you never stopped to notice when you were little then run willie nillie back inside screaming: The aliens are here the aliens are here!
