    Remark to Kosmos 2367 - 1999-072A (26040):
    This object exploded on 2001-11-21. Reason unknown, maybe selfdestruct
    system was intentionally or uniintentionally activated. Explosion
    created circa 300 objects, but only  objects 1999-072C thru T were
    catalogued. Most of them decayed during Dec 2001.
    See eg. on my page:
    http://www.lib.cas.cz/www/space.40/1999/I072.HTM
    
    (Column with heading "Zánik" = "Decay")
    
    Therefore object 1999-072A is probably only the biggest remnant of the
    satellite Kosmos 2367
