    Dear Fellows,
    
    1993-067A (#22875) Cosmos 2265 is a potential decayer around
    11 / 12 August 2003. Offically it was be decribed as a radar calibration satellite - spherical with a diameter of 2.0 m 
    and a mass of 500 kg. I have - looking over the drag behaviour
    during the last months - some question marks.
    Has anybody seen this object and observed fluctuations in
    brightness ? 
    If it really a sphere it could be a another very interesting 
    object for a test of some decay prediction techniques.
