Let's consider the probability of a skydiver filming a meteoroid in dark flight compared to his buddy just above him dropping a rock.

Double facepalm,

It certainly could be a hoax. If so, however, it's instructional,
because it seems technically accurate. Most people trying to fake
something like this would probably have flames and smoke coming off the
object. That's what we typically see with fakes.
