Two sources on this both describe it as happening every day at noon north pole time.  It's not April 1.  I'm lost.  Help?

Its actually where a rift in space time forms to allow the aliens through.

They land, clear customs and get their human skin suits. Afterwards they are quickly sent to Florida.

Well, time zones are set to adjust for rotation, not magnetism, so magnetic north and the northern axis aren't the same thing or place.

Right now the north pole is 86.50°N and 164.04°E which is between extreme NE Canada and Greenland. So it could be Newfoundland standard time (GMT-3:30) or West Greenland standard time (GMT-3:00)
