THE owner of a UFO spotted over Painswick has solved the mystery of the sighting.
Stroud Life reader Pete Llewellyn could not explain the speck in the sky, pictured, which he caught on camera.
He sent the picture to Stroud's best read newspaper in the hope other readers may have seen it.
That prompted contact, not from another world, but rather closer to home.
"It is possible I may be able to shed some light on this sighting with, unfortunately, a rather terrestrial answer," said the reader, who did not wish to be named.
"Over the past two weeks we have been testing a small remote controlled drone equipped with a digital camera which can record both video and still images.
"This is highly likely to be what your photographer has captured. I'm keen to stress that the aerial photography is for recreational use only and we comply with all laws and bylaws associated with the use of such a device, including local air traffic control regulations."
