Has someone recently oberved 2007-27B/31702, an Atlas second stage Centaur
rocket ?  At the time of launch it under-performed placing a NOSS duo in a
lower than intended orbit.  I presume there must be some fuel left over.

Today I found it to be in a tumble of about 5s(sorry no exact
measurements).  I wonder if this can be confirmed and if it has been steady
before ?
