RE: AO-7 Tumbling

There was some postings on the list asking
if the tumble rate of AO-7 had increased
due to observed deep QSB.
For what its worth, I observed AO-7 with
a telescope last summer.  I was looking
specificity for any change in brightness
that might indicate tumbling.  I did not
notice any change of varying brightness
on the time scale of a couple of minutes.
Certainly no variability on a 2-3 second
time frame.
...But, that was last summer.
