Stargazing Eclipse, reflected light, Alternate Universe?

    It was 2004. I was looking up stuff on the computer. Where my computer sits I have a relatively clear view of the hallway. Out of the corner of my eye, a figure passes by my hallway. No one was home and this could not have been a substantial human being. The figure had orange pants and a dark upper half. I own bright orange pajama pants and multiple dark hoodies/shirts.

    How could this be explained scientifically?

    It was almost certainly a trick of the light, or the mind. One esp has to be careful about those things seen very briefly, out of the corner of the eye. The brain can play all sorts of tricks.
