An eagle-eyed Bristol Evening Post reader thinks she may have uncovered the mystery of the UFO filmed over Knowle.
In the story we featured the object flying over houses filmed by video game maker Andy Hadlington.
But people were quick to point out that it looked like airborne rubbish.
Nicola Saunders, a 45-year-old mum of three, who lives on Wells Road, Knowle, thinks she might have found a possible explanation.
She said: "A couple of weeks ago our neighbours were having a velux window fitted to their roof.
"As stones were falling onto our garage roof, the builder put the large cardboard box that the velux window came in on top of our garage roof to protect it from the debris.
"Last week, either Thursday or Friday, the day that we had strong winds, I heard a loud bang and looked out to see the cardboard flying through the air.
"It landed up in the tree in our garden. When I looked out again it was somewhere else in the garden.
"The cardboard was about a metre in length and width, maybe bigger. It may be a coincidence."
Mr Hadlington, 36, said: "It was the freakiest thing I have ever seen in my life. I was sitting in my office and saw it out of the corner of my eye.
"It appeared to come past twice and the second time I got it on camera. I thought it was a piece of metal but it was too far away to tell."
