The search would be like looking for the twinkle in a man's eye from an orbiting satellite! Huge odds against discovering the hypothetical object, but worth the venture for the potential reward...
The signature might be buried in background radiation or somehow communicated to a 'server' without being a beacon, more like an encoded laser pointed at a specific receiver in a chain?
Anyway, I'm probably speculating beyond my subject knowledge so I'll leave it there. Good luck with the project
The Lagrangian points (pronounced /ləˈɡreɪndʒiən/; also Lagrange point, L-point, or libration point), are the five positions in an orbital configuration where a small object affected only by gravity can theoretically be stationary relative to two larger objects (such as a satellite with respect to the Earth and Moon). The Lagrange points mark positions where the combined gravitational pull of the two large masses provides precisely the centripetal force required to rotate with them. They are analogous to geostationary orbits in that they allow an object to be in a "fixed" position in space rather than an orbit in which its relative position changes continuously.

Anyways... BUMP !
