Two satellites collide in orbit – Update

Following on from my post a few days ago, some of the pieces of debris have now been catalogued.

So far, pieces 33757U through to 33770U (14 pieces) have been logged for Cosmos 2251, and pieces 33771U through to 33778U (8 pieces). I’m sure more will be found as the pieces spread out more.

I’ll try and plot a picture of all the pieces soon as they have spread out into many different orbits.
