i made one analog pin(a3) as input and one PWM pin(9) as output. i connected the PWM pin(9) with an LED. when i moved my finger across the analog pin, the led glows brightly. but i din't connect anything in the analog pin(a3). why this is happening?
here is my code:

int ledPin = 9;      // LED connected to digital pin 9
int analogPin = 3;   // potentiometer connected to analog pin 3
int val = 0;         // variable to store the read value

void setup()
{
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);   // sets the pin as output
}

void loop()
{
  val = analogRead(analogPin);   // read the input pin
  analogWrite(ledPin, val / 4);  // analogRead values go from 0 to 1023, analogWrite values from 0 to 255
}
