I found myself on Mars with an acquaintance. I knew it wasn’t the moon but it was even closer to the Earth than the moon is. We could see Africa and I recognized the Sahara Desert.
As we wandered around we came upon what looked like a bunch of dead people. There was a group of emaciated bodies sitting in a circle. Their eyes were open but they didn’t move. Their skin was burned and shiny so I was sure they were dead. As I got closer they started moving. They had been sitting there so long that they were not even seeing anymore. Our presence snapped them out of their trance.
We told them about how our spacecraft lifted off by itself after we got out. We were stranded there just like them.
