Vandenberg spook satellite went boom? (Considering the current regime, it would be to spy on US)

A distinct possibility. I saw my share of them explode in mid air by command detonation when I lived on base as a kid.

Some satellites release subsatellites, that could be killers following a grazing orbit. It’s impressive if they can orbit their targets before the kill.
