The landscape statement applies to "why they themselves hadn't seen the ship before that moment" as in the historically native scientists. That doesn't really present any logic as to why the immediate search and rescue military parties were so inept when it happened live.

Their rules being they are skilled at what they do, yet they couldn't do such a thing when it was possible.

I think the cube thing was a valiant attempt. However they probably would have had more luck using practical methods.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 35 years ago into the Lantern core. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
