    This morning there were about forty trackable peces of debris at orbits 
    right through LEO to just under 1800km
    As can be seen in the above graphic ( Courtesy Nova For win )  , thats quite 
    a ring of steel and , from the experience of FENGYUN 1C ,  it could be some 
    time before all the pieces come up on Spacetrack !
    The "stray" off the W coast of Africa has already decayed.
    Strange that our earlier concerns about 193 being " removed " from orbit and 
    the resultant debris field if it was , were met with derision in certain 
    quarters !
    Strikes me this bird is coming home to roost
    Searching SOCRATES for USA 193 debris proximities already brings up a few 
    interesting results.
