    Note:  94-57A, a DMSP weather satellite has undergone orbital disruption.
    as did its predecessor 91-82A. Its orbital period has decreased, and it's
    now tumbling. Probably due to internal pressure compartment bursting.
    It will be interesting to see if numerous extra debris objects are 
    announced.
    Possibly occurred on October 19.
    best wishes,                 Total observations:  3918 (2009)
