    You were more lucky than me Joe.
    Tried to watch a low 20 degrees pass under Orion here in the early morning (5:50 
    am local time), but an untimely patch of clouds intervened. No observable passes 
    the next days (ignoring passes only 4 degrees over the horizon...).
    Tumbling behaviour has been reported by Bram Dorreman in August.

    I strongly doubt it will. Decay time predictions are increasingly moving forward 
    in time and I don't think it will last beyond 23 September.
