Experience description:   

This experience is so strange, because it happened simultaneously to both my husband and myself. Essentially, we awoke at the same time in a room that was not our bedroom. It was very dark and the only light we could see was a domed door far across the room that led to the bathroom. I actually said, "I hope I don't trip over anything on the way there." He started fumbling for the light on his bedside table, which hasn't even been plugged in for years, to turn it on so he could see. It turned back into our bedroom after a few seconds. It was so strange, and afterward we both described what we had seen to each other and we had seen the same thing! The bathroom door was very far away (which is normally isn't) and it was domed (when it normally is rectangular). Both of us saw the same thing. I wish someone could tell me what the heck happened. It's freaking both of us out!
