Projector- what went wrong?

Ok busted out the projector for the first time in our new house. Has planned on shooting it from our second story into the window for passers by to see. However ran into a few issues that hopefully someone can help me with.

When I shot it through the window the image seemed to reflect back and show off the wall leaving me with the small image in the glass and a huge second one behind it on the wall. Any ideas why? I had read that just shooting it through the window should be fine.

I wound up just turning the projector around and shooting off the wall for Halloween but still want to figure out why.

Thanks in advance

What kind of shower curtain? Was it clear? I found the frosted cheap ones from the dollar store work good. I just tape it to the frame of the window and shot the prone for right at it. I move the projector back till the image fills the frame nicely.

If it was just plain clear I don't think that would work well. Usually the frosted or real thin white ones work. I never actually used a white sheet or white shower curtain. Try it with a frosted cheap one from the dollar store. Look for frosted. That works well for me. Plus it's only a dollar. I have to give white a try.
