Hmm. Just looks like someone packed a rock in their canopy, either accidentally or on purpose and it popped out when the chute unfurled. (Or could just be be a 4114)
Odds of it happening, massive, odds of the rock being just the right size to show up on camera - massive, odds, of the rock being nicely 50% fusion crusted to make it look more like a meteorite - massive, and the grey interior facing the camera nicely- massive most of the way through the shot- massive.
Occam's razor says..
