For a person to cast a shadow, there must be three things – a source of light, a person and an opaque surface.

With that in mind, it’s obvious why this viral photograph has been dubbed “creepy”.

The image appears to show a person’s shadow projected onto a wall and fence.

But there’s just one issue – the street is completely devoid of people.

The only rational explanation is that the silhouette was partly created a parking meter in front of it, while the rest was made up of a dark-coloured stain on the wall.

However, that hasn’t stopped people being “creeped” out by it.

The picture, titled, “I was smoking last night when this stain/ shadow caught”, was taken in Evanston, Illinois, US.

It was shared on Reddit via Imgur yesterday by user nuckingfuts73 and has since gone viral, amassing 1.3 million views.

One viewer wrote: “Once you’ve seen it, even in just a picture, it knows. There is no escape. You can only wait for its inevitable arrival.”

Hinting at supernatural consequences, one said: “damn it who let the spirits out early. they are only supposed to be out on halloween.”

Another added: “Well, now it’s going to catch your soul. It was nice knowing you.”

Implying drug use, one asked: “Smoking what?”
