The 4lb object was investigated by the RAF Flight Safety Branch after it landed in the loft of Peter and Mair Welton's home in Forester Way, Hull, in July this year.
The branch has now identified it as space debris and said this was the only incident of its kind investigated by the RAF in the last five years.
The metal was reported to the RAF as it was initially thought it may have fallen off an aircraft.
But the investigation found the debris had not come from a plane and was more likely to have fallen to earth from space - although it is unknown what the metal was from.
