I nodded off in front of the television. Some weird things going on in my dream, now forgotten. The bit that stuck in my mind was that there was a bright full moon. I looked up at the bright disc in the sky and I could see that it was not a solid object. It was made up of hundreds of stars, very much like the Pleiades. Looking away, it became the solid moon again, but closer inspection again revealed it to be a globular cluster.

For some reason, I was a passenger in the back seat of a car, not sure who was driving. I was watching this moon phenomenon, but also scared to look too closely as I had to keep my eye on the road. Suddenly it faded away, and I was left with the impression that I had just been watching a UFO.
