    In fact, there are two BOZ engine clusters that get ejected from the Proton 
    upper stage on each launch. There are often catalogued as the E and F objects in 
    the international designations.
    
    This one was the first of the two to reenter, the other one is still in a 198 x 
    21895 km x 46.7 deg. orbit.
