And so it came to pass - the image can be seen at

http://www.satellite.eu.org/image/Flare2.jpg

(there is also a gif - Flare1.gif).

Paul gave me the following information about it:

 The photo was shot August 25. The Iridiums 22-26 passed through the
 field beginning at 11:02:16 UT and ending at 11:03:47. The tracks are
 ordered from top to bottom as 24907, 24906,24905,24904,24903. Local
 elevation 35 degrees azimuth 212, slant range about 912km.

clear skies (unlike here),
