Transient hallucination, usually experienced while under the influence of psychoactive substance(s). The person experiencing a shadow trip will have insight into the fact that it is a perceptual disturbance, not part of the shared reality - this insight is a distinguishing characteristic.

Shadow trips are most often a visual hallucination, but can be also be experienced as a brief auditory, olfactory, tactile or gustatory hallucination. Shadow tripping can be a pleasant experience, but is sometimes frightening and uncomfortable.

Drug induced illusion.
They gave me ketamine after surgery, but very time I shut my eyes I would shadow trip, so I asked them to give a diffent analgesic.

After smoking about twenty cones I started shadow tripping. I kept seeing cats out of the corner of my eye, but when I turned to look at them they disappeared.
