 I agree with you, Robert probably saw C2322 r, but a few days ago on Aug
 28th at 20h47 EST (96/08/29 0h47UT) I saw Lacrosse 1 flashing with a period
 of about 7.4 sec. C2322r came a little bit later at 21h06 with it's usual
 2.0 sec period.

 Is this Lacrosse 1 flashing related to a tumbling, I've observed this
 satellite many times in the past and this is the first time I notice some
 flashing (the pass was almost at zenith).
