One more pass of the anti-satellite debris cloud

Today we made one more observation of the debris cloud today between 8 and 12 UTC. This time we  pointed the radar East 45 degrees above the horizon to get a better sensitivity for low altitude debris. All I can say is that the cloud of debris is very clearly visible.

Here's a similar plot for the previous run.
