Challenger Explosion --

6th grade. I was in my regular classroom, and was a bit slower than the others putting my stuff away, so I was the last one out. By the time I was done packing, the room just down the hall (where were to congregate) had suddenly become eerily quiet. A teacher who had been sent to check on stragglers was like, "The Challenger. It blew up." We were affixed to the set for a while after, with the news showing it blow up, and the side rockets fly off, over and over and over again.

9/11 --

Programming class at a tech school. Word came down about the first impact during a brief break. Internet was massively clogged because everybody on the planet was trying to access CNN simultaneously. Someone got a feed via actual TV just in time for the second plane to make impact.
