Looking at the pole in question, I see it as being about 6 inches above the window, if it was shown at all. And the outlined pole makes it look about 18 inches or so above the window. And finally, I'm thinking the Alien is a lot closer to the window, thus making the creature in front of the pole. Just my observations, be it what they are.
Thanks Frootloops for checking the Ariel view! That helps.
This whole thing is a bit tricky.... I hope it can all be figured out.
