Hi guys i was just in my garden tonight with my GF (around midnight UK time) when i felt like i was being watched over my left sholder so i turned around and noticed something with red eyes staring at me in the garden next door that has a 3 and a half foot fence between us...at first i thought it was a lazer pen but when it blinked it scared the s**t out of me then it seemed to duck down i told my gf to hand me my phone quickly so i could take pictures to see if i could findout what it was but whatever it was it was gone and nothing showed in the 3 pictures i took. Can you guys try and help me findout what it could be please? my gf is freaked out thinking its something ghostly and wouldnt let me go and try to findout what it was but i think it might of been some kind of cat or UK animal what do you think?

Cool I hope it's a little monster. If I found a monster I would give him chicken and stuff like that. You'd have a monster friend in no time!
The freaky thing is that about 10mins before this happened we were watching a UFO glowing and moving then turning around quickly and stopping still then it disappeared...anyway that probly has nothing to do with this lol well i hope anyway. The guy that lives next door to me weighs around 35-40 stone and always goes to bed at 9pm every night he has no family living with him and if he was in the garden i would know because when he comes out of his home he has some type of alarm that makes a very loud annoying noise lol. I would rule the guy out completely but thanks for the human perspective it COULD of been a kid playing backhopping the only thing i could say against that is there was no noise from jumping fences and i had a tempermental labrador with me lol he barks at anything or cowers from it

I don't know if this helps but in human eyes we reflect red (think of red eye is photographs) when light is cast in just the right way. While it is unusual for it to be visible without a flash it is not completely impossible.
My daughter, for some reason, will appear to have 'glowing' red eyes in certain lights and if looked at from just the right angle. So maybe it was simply your neighbour. Maybe you could ask them if they were in the garden during the night?
Shadow people are supernatural shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen flickering on walls and ceilings in the viewer's peripheral vision. They are often reported moving with quick, jerky movements, and quickly disintegrate into walls or mirrors. They are believed to be evil and aggressive in nature, although a few people consider them to be a form of guardian angel.
The stories of shadow people have been compared to those of the Raven Mocker, a witch from Cherokee mythology who sometimes appears as a shadowy phantom, and the Islamic Jinn. Several scientific principles can be used to explain reports of apparitional experiences such as shadow people. These include optical illusions or hallucinations brought on by physiological or psychological circumstances, drug use or side effects of medication, and the interaction of external agents on the human body. Another reason that could be behind the illusion is sleep deprivation, which may lead to hallucinations.
