southern hemisphere full moon
I was six yrs old, and in grade 1.  I remember it started snowing, and the whole class rushed to the windows to watch something most of us had never seen in our lives - snowflakes.  I remember watching them drift down outside, then run down the nearby drain as they melted.

I remember my Mum and her brother rivited to the TV all evening, watching this wierd B&W footage, and me saying "Do we have to watch this AGAIN?!"

Yup, I remember the day man landed on the moon.  Quite vivdly.   :~D

I wasn't alive at the time of the moon landing. My sister was, but she was only about eight months old, so she has no memory of it. According to family legend, she was learning to crawl, and kept distracting our parents from the telecast they were trying to watch.

I've heard many a person bitch about "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." I don't really understand the complaints -- these were astronauts, not poets.
