HEre is the result when we start the exposure seeing an Iridium Flash. I explain. For this Iridium 25 Flash, I have waited to see the satellite before to start the exposure. The sky being quite bright (it was 23:49:15), I feared to overexpose the film. It didn't, but I launched the pose when I saw the satellite... and it was too late, I missed the starting of the flash.
A few minutes later for Iridium 45, I learned my lesson and it was good.
Specialists would recognize the tree stars of the pelvis of the Leo (on the left of the flash) and a part of its mane (on the lower right).
