    Interesting and plausible alternative explanation by Danial at skylightsblog (link above)

    The alternative conjecture ought to be testable by checking the relative speed of the rock – if it was released from the canopy it will not have had time to accelerate to very high relative speed, probably not at terminal velocity (I’m guesstimating without having done the calculation)

    Fun to think about
