AO-73 : Funcube-1

Rotation Period

03 Jul 2020 = 25.2 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
04 Jul 2020 = 24.3 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
05 Jul 2020 = 23.6 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
06 Jul 2020 = 23.7 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
07 Jul 2020 = 23.2 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
08 Jul 2020 = 22.2 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)
09 Jul 2020 = 22.3 seconds (from averaged panel temperatures)

AO-73 continues to rotate in the reverse of its normal spin direction with a high level of Nutation.
