    Bernhard Gotthardt has kindly shared with us his fine image of the Proton Block
    DM burn that circularized the orbit of three Glonass M satellites, launched on
    2006 Dec 25. The second image file is an enlargement of the first:

    Hi Mr. Molczan!
    My name is Bernhard Gotthardt and I am from Salzburg, Austria. While 
    observing during the night from 25.12.2006 to 26.12.2006 we recognized
    this "cloud".
    It was possible for me to take a picture with my Canon 350d with 
    EF-1.8/85 at exactly 00:50 a.m local time (23:50 UTC) about 30km east 
    from the town of Salzburg.
    I read your message in 
    and thought, that you are maybe interested in this picture. Here it is.
    Kind regards,
