    As the FengYun 1C debris is mostly in a somewhat higher orbit than 770 km 
    there still is a highly risk that this debriscloud may collide with the 
    newly debriscloud(s).
    The count of fragments for FengYun 1C now stands at 2530 pieces according to 
    the latest SpaceTrack cataloging - up to 1999-25 DJM.
    This debris cloud has spread out along the entire orbital sphere. A lot of 
    them have perigee much lower than 770 km.
    
    More collisions will be ineventably.
