Satellite family

Observing at the Okanagan Observatory on May 23, 2014, I noticed a bright polar orbit satellite surrounded by a three degree long streak of fainter light. Later investigation revealed the bright satellite had deployed ten smaller satellites which accounted for the 'streak'. The impression looking through a 15" telescope was that there were far more than just 10 small satellites in the cloud and it appeared to be like a debris cloud.
