Phantom Band

This split window view, courtesy of Google Maps Street View, shows the point of view "piece" in the lower half (yellow and green icon), with the corresponding northward view in the upper.

Coincidentally, when the car went by, dodecacam filming, a neighborhood band was just setting up, and the street is marked closed.

If you follow the other car's route (north-south), there's no band.

Google Streets implies a time coordinate as well as these spatial coordinates, and intersecting trajectories will each have their own time lines -- like in the movie Elephant in some ways.
