  1. Unexpectedly wide eyed to hear the story of the star moving away… The ‘hid behind a cloud’ being the icing on the cake – I had the same experience in the late 80’s. And I would describe the ‘star’ as simply assuming a velocity when it moved. That was the bit that made it hard to explain. And I wasn’t the only one to see it. But I wasn’t expecting to hear someone else tell my story!

    Which reminds me the 80’s for me were full of sleep paralysis. I would lay there thinking, okay when I can move, this time I’ll get out of bed and jump up and down – but I was always so relieved to move again that I would usually fall back to sleep. This could repeat 4 or 5 times…

    I also astral projected once, but only because I was trying – I’d read a book on it. The funny thing was when I decided to return to my body I drifted towards it and then stopped. That’s when it hit me – I’d read so much about how to get out but it had never occurred to me to read about how to get back in! After a (fatally amused) panic I snapped back in with a sharp pain in my lower back.

    I never tried it again. The paralysis continued, less often, into most of my twenties. But it was never a pain in the arse literally… and I have no related stories.

    (I think the control centers are cut off from the body so we don’t act out our dreams and sometimes we can wake up before they are reconnected.)
