...when men from planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon?

Me, I was sitting in a classroom in Doncaster East State School in Melbourne, along with about half the school population, huddled around one of two or three small black-and-white TV's that had been brought in for the occasion.  The moonwalk was timed to occur during the US evening to maximize the viewing audience, making it around lunch time Down Under.

To this day, I can't say with any certainty that I actually saw Neil Armstrong take that historic step, because from where I sat it was nigh on impossible to discern the actual picture from all the glare and reflections off that tiny screen, but I'll never forget the experience of that moment as a nerdy 11-year-old.
