    I've been hearing murmurings around the community here in Washington that there may have been an extremely energetic event (satellite break-up?) in the last week or so in the LEO altitude range (700-1000 KM).  "An enormous amount of debris" in the range of 1000 pieces may have been created.
    
    Has anyone seen anything abnormal of late?  I haven't, nor have I heard anything.
    
    Thanks,
