At 1:10 the camera is zoomed in on the object...
At 1:13 the camera is zoomed out so the image is much smaller...
At 1:17 the object is still there just left of the middle of the frame...
At 1:19 the object is still there, left and up a little, but almost completely faded as the car continues to drive past, which makes the very thin
line of light reflecting from the visible face of the tetrahedron nearly gone. Then as the car continues to drive, the face that was illuminated
disappears (because of the angle compared to the moving car), and that is why the image appears to just disappear. Remember, this object has faces,
and they are not all lit, so as the car moves, the lighting changes.
One of the main things that is an obvious give-away for me that this is real is the way the guy keeps zooming in and out, and after careful analysis,
it is perfect zooming... in other words, the zooming on the object is perfectly matched to the zooming of the surrounding scenery, and that is very
hard to do with CGI, especially the kinds of programs that people use, like After Effects. Couple that with the fact that the car is moving, and the
angle to the object is always changing, it would require top-of-the-line software, expert-level of CGI artistry, and a lot of time to produce
something that is this good.
Remember also that the brain has a thing called PARADIGM, and this is a filter that the brain uses to determine what it is seeing. A big part of
paradigm is belief, and also, familiarity. People are not used to seeing large spacecraft parked over buildings, and the only ones we have seen so
far all appear to be CGI because of flaws in how they were made. From what I can see, there are no flaws in this video.
