Cosmos-2445, an optical reconnaissance satellite of the Kobalt-M type, completed its mission and re-entered on February 23, 2009. This means that the satellite, launched on November 14, 2008, worked for 102 days, which is close to nominal lifetime of satellites of this class.

Shortly before the reentry the satellite produced two fragments, registered as 33969 and 33970. This appears to be a normal end-of-mission sequences for Kobalt satellites.
