Just got this.

On 25 November 2015 at approximately 0816z, [multiple objects] were detected
in the vicinity of NOAA 16 (#26536), which may indicate a breakup of the
non-operational satellite.  As of 1830z, 19 associated objects have been
cataloged... More pieces may be cataloged as analysis continues...
Just a reminder how messy it is up there.
