    My luck was with me last night as I caught by chance the Briz-M failure 
    train.
    
    The following summary of data collected on the Briz-M failure shows 
    three distinct objects.  This may be due to the means of compression 
    used to create the four frame or the s/c may have moved relative to each 
    other since Kevin Fetter's observation early in the night with one being 
    obscured by the others... or...?

    Use a FITS viewer to look at the tracks.  Pay particular attention to 
    the fourth frame which reveals the time of maximum pixel value and the 
    individual s/c become distinct in time.
    
    I have a few more frame sets available for review if you are interested, 
    please request off list.
    
    For those interested in looking at the FITS files I'd suggest to use
