My personal opinion is that many of these experiences are hard to pinpoint because of the reasons you state.  I think you are seeing the plasticity of the astral experience - that what you think can manifest. This is one reason it is so hard to get a good firm handle on what might be going on. (Also why it would be hard to take up something like the Randi challenge with any confidence of success.)

Were you separate from your body? Maybe. Did you create the images that seemed out of place? Probably. Why? Well, maybe a way of your 'self' easing you into the experience, or maybe because your physical body and your astral body were still connected and you were getting feedback from one to the other.

I think the most important question is "Is it a worthwhile experience?" You are the best person to answer that, but I believe that if it expands your understanding of what it means to be 'you' then absolutely yes.

(I guess a lot of us hope for the concrete astral experience that doesn't have mis-information in it, equally a lot of us are more interested in the 'higher' level astral experiences that have little to do with the physical realm.)

Your experience sounds alot like what I've experienced, for years I have tried to figure out if these experiences are wishful dreams or the real thing, (what ever that is). I think the experience is essentially the same for everyone, but to different degrees. I also think it is a skill that is developed over time. I to have had componets of the experience that were not exactly like waking reality, like furniture that was different than is currently in my house and often times ithe sky will be dark during a projection, but in reality it is daytime outside. I also have trouble moving around and seeing, but I think it's a great thing just to be able to have any kind of alternate reality experience.

I had a really weird AP or was it a dream?  It looked like the real thing, I was in my bed I felt the vibrations all over my body big time, then I did just once outside awareness of myself and close my eyes then felt myself fly out of my body hit the ground, then I did the unmask of eyes or say I can see then I was able to see then I stepped out of my room the color was different like when you put the color more sharp (darker), then I moved outside over my house then went into my mom's room saw my mom in bed (she wakes up early in morning) she spoke to me though which is weird I showed her my hand was going through the wall, then I went into my body and woke up but it was 2pm in afternoon my mom wasn't even at home, was my mind playing tricks on me (ie was I really AP'ing or was I virtual AP'ing like robert bruce like to put it) it just look all so real, I had full control of this dream but it had to be a dream unless I was talking with my mom's astral body and wasn't aware of it and wasn't able to get back to my body until I woke up 2pm in the afternoon? Weird, amazing though but weird because I can't put my finger if this was the real thing or my mind playing tricks on me or maybe it's signifying the future that I may be able to do all this (I never had the heavy vibration all over my body before).
