There was a lot of panicking when Sputnik occurred. The space race made a major impression on many people during the 1950s and 1960s. I wonder if we will ever get past the moon.

And when they sent that poor little doggy up,never to return. How soon we become used to yesterdays fantasies. A bit scary thinking the space eye in the sky was probably counting the sheep on your farm. Days of your childhood.

My Dad, born in 1903, used to love talking about how in just his lifetime we went from horse and buggy to space.  He loved watching the walk on the moon.

The aurora is beautiful... I used to get itsy-bitsy glimpses of it when

I lived in Seattle, but only on rare nights when skies there were clear. Thanks for the bit about your gran - she truly did live through a lot of changes. I remember when my 14-year-old brother strung antenna wires from the top of one Douglas Fir tree to the next and tuned in on Sputnik with his crystal radio set. This was even before we could get tv signals in those mountain areas.

Thank you so much for the memories, and the lesson.  I did not know that Australia got southern lights.  I learn something new every day, isn't it wonderful.
