    Five months after the CBERS 1 launch the CZ-4B 3rd stage fragmented. More 
    than 300 pieces were tracked.
    Already 143 have decayed.
    With the new 14 pieces there are now 337 pieces.
    As the CBERS-1 is in orbit with the same inclination as Feng Yun 1C was (98 
    degrees) it is quite well possible that these new fragments
    were discovered while observing FengYun pieces. The fragments are in orbits 
    between 408 and 836 km.
