8338 Ralhan           Discovered 1985 Mar. 27 at Brorfelde.
Danish physicist Philip Ralhan Bidstrup (b. 1979) obtained a doctorate from the University of Copenhagen in 2008 based on a feasibility study for detecting and observing small minor planets by a spacecraft in deep space. The name was suggested by A. C. Andersen.
