    Aren't some of these satellite also launched on Tsiklon-3?

    This might be an interesting opportunity for those with imaging capability.
    The EORSATs are low and fairly big, so there should be a fair chance of
    resolving structure.
    
     See http://www.fas.org/spp/military/program/track/seesat.htm  for a picture
    of one in orbit  made from Maui using the speckle-imaging atmospheric
    compensation technique.
