Wie sagt man "Out of the corner of my eye"?

In der Ecke meines Auges habe ich gesehen, wie mein Bruder aus dem Haus ging.

Am I using the right word for "corner" or would another word serve better?

    I clarified the question and wonder if can be re-opened in its current form. The OP made a plausible but wrong effort to translate "corner," using the wrong dictionary. – Tom Au Jul 20 '14 at 22:52

The correct term in German is aus dem Augenwinkel.

Aus dem Augenwinkel sah ich, wie mein Bruder aus dem Haus ging.
