A very brilliant flare of the Iridium 30 satellite just over my little Merlot's Vineyard in Trentino, Dolomites North Italy,

taken with a Canon 40D and a Canon zoom lens 17/85 mm at focal 17mm, Focal ratio 6.3, Iso 640 , 30 seconds exposure. I've calculated the time of exposure start and exposure length in a way that the image of the Flare could result as more Symmetric as possible.
