FengYun 1C FY-1C debris
China kill vehicle destroyed FengYun 1C - an old polar orbit weather sat and created swarms of space debris. The cataloged entries move across our morning sky 5am-6am . They are faint 6+-7+ magnitudes. Note the apparent parallel tracks. You can just make out the Crux on the lower right hand corner.
