Once I tried to follow a satellite with my cheap telescope. I couldn't see it at all. I don't know if it would be the same for professional astronomers.

CLYDE TOMBAUGH, THE DISCOVERER OF PLUTO witnessed UFOs on more than one instance. A year or so ago I posted a link to a catalogue of blue book and sign/grudge reports... you might want to search for those and check out his original reports. I don't have enough time to look for them right now (sorry).

When you are looking unidentified objects in space, how are you going to know its a UFO???
Astronomers probably expect to see something they cant identify. And of course, most space/sky ships would be either so small they dissapear or so close they zip by too fast.
I do remember one astronomer that did a very early report about flying objects crossing between us and the sun (as in fleet size). The pictures resemble those black ships in Babylon 5, lol. Could have been insects I suppose.
