The cameraman who filmed the object states that the object came to a halt, and then began moving again
I have no reason to disbelieve that what the cameraman has stated is anything but the truth.
To my knowledge meteorites do not stop and start. Unless you can show video evidence of one doing so.
It's a perfectly logical explanation of how a meteor can appear to stand still, and then accelerate at incredible velocity, but this is just the appearance to the observer, not what the meteor is actually doing, it's actually slowing down from atmospheric drag, even though it looks like it's speeding up, which is a matter of changing perspective.

The Cameraman had no idea what he was looking at. He saw the object stationary in the sky before it entered the atmosphere, dropping lower and then moving slowly directly toward him. That is what he thought was something coming to a halt. Once it entered the atmosphere, it started to grow a tail and that was when he started seeing it moving. The more it got closer, the faster it started to move until his position became oblique to the object in which it whipped by him at incredible speed. As discussed, it has already been classified a meteor, so it is really a mute point now. Look at the presentation, and you will see what I am talking about. I am glad you brought this up here, however, holding on to a notion that it was anything else but a meteor defies logic and science. If you want to call it a UFO, it is certainly your right to do so.
I saw that but it's definitely not a bolide like this one is according to charlyv. One of the obvious ways they are not similar is we only have seconds of video of this event and the Chili UAP video is over 9 minutes long which among other differences rules out a bolide for the Chili UAP. They did consider that hypothesis in Chili and rejected it, rightfully so.

There is another thread on here about the Chilean Gov releasing UFO vid. The last few mins of that vid the UFO releases a vapor trail too. Kind of similar to this one dating back to 1971!!

As presented, indistinguishable from an airplane.
I don't really see anything exceptional in the film that's going to generate a lot of reports, in contrast to the grand teton fireball which looks quite exceptional and did generate a lot of reports.

But none of those claims are evident in the video.
Particularly, this one...
"The rate of acceleration was extra ordinary"
