    The explosion onboard Cosmos 2367 is not likely to have blown it to bits,
    regardless of the number of debris pieces being tracked. I have observed
    prior such events and the main spacecraft is *always* left nearly intact as
    far as the eye can tell. Of course, there could always be a first time. The
    principle debris piece is actually now in a slightly higher orbit.
