Maybe something is following you, if your dreams seem just too real.
Looking at the sun and seeing a ufo rush at you, that sounded pretty spooky. But when the folks gathered around and looked puzzled, and then disappeared.. if they just disappeared like *poof*, then that sounds like they were using some kind of temporal displacement kind of stuff.
And how in the world did you go from a beach to everything going murky with a thick haze? Did you see the transition, or was it just from one scene to the next, like you cut from scene to scene in a movie?

Though I do have some experience of the Astral I do hope you see how I came to the conclusion that this orb was Astral/Etheric in origin, purely from a dreaming standpoint. Simply, you could see/hear it but the dream characters could not, and thus it was most likely not a dream object. Very cool.
How did you sleep 18 hours? Just how it happened? I assume that everything with the temple related dreams that happened was dreams within dreams and projections within dreams.
I think it's a very rare thing, that sort of long dream that is basically lucid. I am young so I don't know how often it comes around but I know I have had one that was quite long lasting.
As you have some astral experience I imagine this will make sense: That orb could well be your Astral Double, returning back to you, and at certain times that you is inside of your dreams. That is what I would call super-lucidity, and nothing I've heard of before. Even the times when it sort of taught you stuff and stayed outside of you, still could be the Astral Double and you have encountered a different way of interacting with it as it returns, maybe that part of you is very strong and is remembered through dreams primarily. I have felt the whole time that this orb is you, though not created by you. The Astral Body would do what it wants and go where it wants, it's kind of silly to ask why (if you were stuck focusing on the dream and wont remember anyway at this point)
I don't know, this crossing between Astral and Dream is something I'm not really good with, though I'm really starting to wonder about some of my own experiences. Again I am sort of reaching here but hope it adds to your understandings.

How it could be you: Astral Projectors talk about how you can project and never know about it. You can go all over the universe even, and if you don't have your mind in the right place to remember it at the point of return, then you forget it.
So imagine the grey thing is you, your Astral body flying around without you knowing about it, while you are dreaming. It can leave whenever, especially when asleep, and all you would remember was being asleep. So why could it not leave while you are dreaming as well?
So that thing is your astral body doing whatever it's doing as you sleep, while you are dreaming. You are aware of it, the dream characters are not. It is returning to you. You basically saw yourself returning to your body from an astral journey that you don't remember.
Just an idea, and one theory. It really could be anything, but I think it is outside of your dream, external to it since the characters don't even see it.
