Short article about the accuracy of the so called flashbulb memories

Neisser U., Harsch N.
Phantom flashbulbs: False recollection of hearing the news about Challenger
in: Winograd E., Neisser U. (eds.) Affect and Accuracy in Recall; Studies of "Flashbulb" Memories, p.9-31 (1992)
for the more scientifically minded.

Let's face it, these recollections are less accurate than they feel. But I don't want to interrupt the game for it is fun. I know exactly where I was for the shuttle explosions and for 9/11. Do I?
