Shocking Video Surfaces of the Challenger Exploding in 1986

Video of Challenger explosion taken by Florida man surfaces.  This rare film of the 1986 Challenger explosion, taken by Jeffrey Ault of Orange City, Fla., has emerged. It is perhaps the only amateur recording of the event on film. Actually from the looks of this, it was probably filmed on Super 8.

Many people my age (old) remembers exactly where they were that day when the Challenger exploded in 1986.   I was in college and I came home from class to my apartment where my three other roommates surrounded the TV in tears, shocked.   We couldn’t take our eyes off the TV for the rest of the day.    It was a sad week for our country.
