Eyewitnesses say this was no meteorite, especially since a bunch of helicopters came looking for it and then hauled it away.
Many people, including paramedics and police officers, reported sightings of spherical, orange mystery objects flying over Moseley and Kings Heath.

Authorities said the crane was on a barge at the marina off U.S. Highway 1 in Brevard County.
The collapse of the crane caused the barge to sink. The crane smashed through a cement beam holding up part of the dock and knocked out the water line that is used for fire protection.
McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling says Josh M. Dawe died when the crane collapsed onto the aerial lift in which he worked.
Local authorities say the crane fell about 10:45 Wednesday morning onto the roof of a warehouse under construction in the central Illinois town.
Kimmerling says preliminary evidence shows the boom collapsed on the lift while girders were being set for the roof. She says a cause hasn't been determined.

|John Farley captured this strange object while taking photographs in Devon|
As a budding photographer, John Farley is used to capturing some extraordinary scenes and images.
But nothing could prepare him for the shock of a speeding UFO which he caught on camera while taking pictures of a famous British beauty spot.
Mr Farley was snapping away at Berry Head in Brixham, Devon, when he captured the unusual image of sunny Torbay.
But it wasn't until he got home and glanced through the images on his computer that he noticed a mysterious round object in the background.
UFOs are a much loved phenomena for the British public, with barely a week going by without a sighting of a flying saucer hovering over Wembley or Waterloo Bridge.
Online searches for UFOs have increased by 116 per cent from the beginning of May for a two-month period, according to Eva Stringleman, a research analyst with Hitwise UK.
The huge increase ties in with the release of declassified files from the Ministry of Defence, now available to view on the National Archives website.
