Has anyone else seen Meteor 2-8 (82-25A, 13113) tumbling?  I didn't
find any reports in online PPAS records, but last night I looked for 
it at the predicted time and place and in binoculars saw a tumbling 
object with one flash and three more maxima (flash-max-max-max).  
Here's a PPAS report that assumes it was this object:

82- 25 A 99-10-08 02:29:57   EC  197.8 0.3  12 16.49  Fmmm mag+4.5->inv

Only the flash was as bright as +4.5.  

Location: 30.314N, 97.866W, 270m.
