Exclamation Something keeps hitting my hood!!!

Well, sorta...Heres the situation. Everytime i turn off my car i hear a thump from above...I have no idea what it is, it's not really a big deal, just a bit of a annoyance...Oh keep in mind my sunroof is broken, thats really the only thing i can think that could do it...but whats up there that would do that?!?

Thanks in advance

Are you sure it isn't one of the vacuum operated flaps in the dash slamming shut once the vacuum is gone (from shutting down the engine) due to a large vacuum leak? Sound might be reverberating off the windshield, through the defroster vents, could make it sound as if from above.
