Let X be a Noetherian space, let f be a continuous self-map on X, let Y be a closed subset of X, and let x be a point in X. We show that the set containing all positive integers n such that the n-th iterate of x under f lands in Y is a union of at most finitely many arithmetic progressions along with a set of Banach density 0. This is joint work with Jason Bell and Tom Tucker.
