I'm not sure what it is, just like you are not sure what it isn't. I do know it is not CGI, after looking at it critically for over 24 hours.
Nobody else on the net even noticed the lit structure under it. And no, it is not a circus tent structure. You see, that is the problem here...
people look at it quickly and then say the first thing that pops into their heads. They aren't careful to analyze what it is, they just look at it
and say silly things like "oh, it's clearly a reflection", or "it must be a hologram", or "it must be a balloon", etc. How do I know it's a
structure to hold the object? Well, I have looked at every frame of the video slowly and carefully, making measurements of the angles of the
structure, and found them to match the angles of the tetrahedron. It is actually a wooden (or similar) structure, with a raised platform (look at
time 00:45), what looks like a triangular hole in the middle of it ( time 00:57), and three tower structures that support the object on each of its
faces, with the tip of the object pointed down (so it lands with the tip pointed down, like an upside down tetrahedron). The mysterious part is what
is lighting that landing structure up so much? The entire thing is bathed in super bright light, and there isn't any visible light source hitting
it, and the lighting is quite even with no visible shadows.
Also, with the bright lights there isn't any trace of cables going up to the floating object, even though some light should reflect off of it as the
car moves past it. We should see some kind of glimmer from the light reflecting. Also, if there were cables, the object would not rotate around at
least 2 axis as it does.
Also, notice how the light of the landing structure is all reflected light, since it is not blooming the camera's CCD, but also how white the light
is compared to the street lights.
