    As a matter of interest a search on Cosmos 2238 yielded  posts from Bjorn
    Gimle dated 1 December 1994  http://satobs.org/seesat/Jan-1995/0009.html
    and 6 December 1994 http://satobs.org/seesat/Jan-1995/0016.html Interesting
    background even though the object in question now seems to be something
    else.
    
    http://www.tbs-satellite.com/tse/online/sat_cosmos_2238.html provides some
    statistics. Other listings on this site may provide some info on other
    satellites which could assist in ID.  The EORSAT listing was publicly
    available but RORSAT requires subscription.
