Close Encounters of the Third Kind - And the #1 Sign Your Spaceship Is Flying Too Low...
Near the end of the film, when the really really BIG spacecraft is coming into the landing area, the ship's enormous black shadow is shown engulfing all the onlookers below.
Now, the luminous source that was lighting the area at the time was a set of big stadium lights placed around the landing pad. However, the spaceship was flying ABOVE these stadium lights, so no shadow should have been cast.

I agree..Also, anyone notice that the spaceship is too low to clear the mountain? I know it's moving up as it goes along, but it's moving forward too fast to get over it. Once it clears Devil's Tower, the ship isn't seen moving downwards (though that may be the reason the poor tech ran to the porta-potty); yet it is scant meters above the ground when it flips over, and still has to descend quite a distance before touching the pavement.

Is this somewhat similar to the license movie makers grant themselves when they make us ear the roar of spaceship reactor in vacuum?
