As for the ground illumination by this object, I clipped two scenes where you can see that :
1) the object must be further away, almost at the distance of the buildings you can see in the background, hence the view angle of the reporter is consistent.
2) it illuminates not the ground but also the tress and if you pay close attention you can see that it even casts a shadow on a bush (indicated by my arrows)
