    Hi all, I saw the final stage of atlas rocket (centaur) NORAD 13007 this
    night.
    
    I noticed that it was tumbling and produced a lot of flashes. The first
    flash was about -2 mag, the others was dim.
    
    Its tumbling period was irregular.
    
    Its trayectory in the sky was from west to southeast.
    
    My location is trujillo, Venezuela 9.40N 70.44W
    
    Time of passage: 19:18 local time ( 23:48 UTC)
