That's simply not true. You apparently haven't looked at the
movie frame by frame. The object appears in 5 _consecutive_
frames, beginning at a point where it should have passed in
front of the white surface of the tower.

>An out-of-focus bird in flight would be such an object.

And why do you think that possibility hadn't occurred to me? Was
it a bird with an invisibility shield that happened to uncloak
by coincidence just as it passed the edge of the buliding?

If the object had appeared a bit higher in the frame, it might
have been a bird or something obscured by the dark background of
the black smoke, but it emerged at a point and traveled in a
direction such that it clearly should have crossed the white
face of the tower just below the black smoke.

Someone suggested it might be debris ejected from the tower by
the explosion. That might be a  possibility, though I'd be
surprised if debris from an explosion could reach supersonic

No it wouldn't. The object is greatly elongated by motion blur
due to its high angular speed. Obviously, no details of the
object's shape can be seen to ever determine what it was. But
it's unlikely to be a bird or bug for the reasons I gave that I
think should be clear to anyone willing to examine the video
frame by frame.

Yes. It's _clearly_ debris ejected from the explosion in the
second tower. It shows up just as the fast-moving object
disappears. There's a  better view of it in the longer sequence

Yes, but you haven't really examined it unless you look at it
frame by frame.
