One would expect them to be in shock for at least several seconds before trying to get a focus on where the object went.
I would hesitate to assume there is a "normal" for this kind of thing. It is already quite stunning to witness the unexplained light, then the light bursts. So although surprisingly fast, the zip up to the sky isn't all that much to take in at that point.
I can only speak for myself, I would have had a similar reaction to this. For me to have been in a state of shock it would take much more than a distant visual display like that.
Not only that, if I was pointing a camera, that tends to erect a psychological "wall of separation" from events being recorded, so emotional attachment at the time would be somewhat reduced compared to not filming.
Still, there are some reasonable points as to why this video is faked. But how can we be certain the original footage wasn't altered to make it appear to be a hoax?
