First “Dark Flight” of a Meteorite Captured on Film

I know this happened back in 2012, but I’m just now finding out about the Norwegian skydiver who was almost hit by a falling meteorite, and managed to capture it on video.  This was the first “dark flight” of a meteorite ever filmed, the “dark flight” being the portion of a meteorite’s descent to Earth that occurs after it has burnt out.  At this point, it just looks like any other falling rock… except, really fast.

Wondering what the connection is to Upload?  Totally reminds me of the meteorites falling around Raymond.
