As I have said before, it sepends on how you define "UFO
sightings" in the first place. Trivial cases where people see
meteors, satellite re-entries, etc., are very easy to screen
out. UFOs should be those reports that survive careful screening
and defy obvious explanation. Otherwise, yes, poor or
inexperienced observers are often fooled and do contribute
'noise' to the UFO question. Any halfway serious investigation,
though, could easily deal with this problem.
