After analyizing the video I found many motion tracking errors, and masking errors, but the video above shows the most obvious error and that is position consistency. The hoaxer had trouble maintaining the position of the UFO while the girl on the ATV passes in front of it, so it jumps around.

-updated explaination-

As you can see, the UFO jumps around to different positions when the girl's body passes over it. This error actually gives you a clue on how they motion tracked the video in order to "match move" the UFO into the video. The UFO jumps around because the tracking point that was tracking the movement of the video was on the left tree. When the girls body blocked the left tree from view, this made the tracking point get lost, and jump around, and it even started to track the girls body so the UFO jumps down for a frame because the girl's body was moving down. Then when the girls body was no longer blocking the tree from view, the UFO snaps back into place because it can now see the tree (the original tracking point) and know where it is supposed to be. The creater of the video either didn't notice or didn't take the time to fix it.
