Can it be done?

Cute. Of course it can be done.

Pretty easily too. You just move the camera up and down until they are aligned.

Tricky in a car, though. And, for added difficulty, there are three points lining up, not just two. Two on the foreground hill, and one on the background hill.

Now wait a minute...

It's supposed to be hills behind and in front of the car lining up in the mirror. If it was a transparent "mirror", you wouldn't see whatever that white thing in the corner is.
Lamplighter Wednesday Aug 21 01:39 PM
HM, I think I disagree.
Happy Monkey Wednesday Aug 21 01:50 PM
The mechanism to adjust the mirror is in the middle, is part of the joint between the mirror and the stem (said attachment is not visible in the picture; it's behind the mirror), and it wouldn't be a different colored plastic from the mirror frame.

That light colored thing in the mirror is the 3rd brake light in the rear window.

It's a car.

Here is Google Street view of the same place (different time)

Here is Google's Street View (rear facing) view at the same location...

I wouldn't presume that the mirror is perpendicular to the direction of travel

There is a bald spot in roughly the right location on that rear-view hill. And the blue-with distance background hill is a decent match as well.

I neglected to flip the rearward view horizontally for the mirror image.

Ah come on!! Don't be ridiculous. Anyone can see it's the forehead of a perusing Alien which makes the whole picture even more amazing.

How did you find the location?
Lamplighter Tuesday Aug 27 09:49 AM
ETA: WRONG, not the Comments.
It was in the link labeled "SOURÇE" on the right side of your OP link.
