    From memory - I am away from base at the moment - but I am sure someone can correct me: Cosmos 379 and Cosmos 382 were launchd within a short space of time during 1970 as tests of the Soviet piloted lunar spacecraft.
    
    I believe that Cosmos 382 was the one described at the time as "a Lunar Cabin": ie the Lander.

    =============================
    
    This object is purportedly some sort of Soyuz/Zond:
    
    USSPACECOM Catalog No.:4786
    International Designation Code:1970-103-A
    
    Its in a 55 degree 5241x2413 orbit. AFAIK, no one has produced a 
    telescopic image of this object, but it certainly would be 
    interesting to get a look to see if it is indeed a Soyuz derivative.
