During the course of the day numerous logo-bedecked vans with satellite dishes on their roofs appeared and parked near the object. These soon produced people who promptly set up cameras and lights and reporter/presenters who then began to describe the scene to their distant audiences. Technicians soon began muttering amongst themselves, complaining that the object was so big and so black that it was difficult to frame a shot that gave a decent background for the presenter.
At this point, the object's surface began to display an image, which eventually became a perfect representation of the scene on the other side of the object, effective rendering it invisible to the cameras. However, this rendition was in black and white, which had the added effect of making the cameras seem to be faulty.
