Iridium 7 on the 13th of May

Not perfect, but not bad!  This is Iridium 7 flaring to magnitude -6 at 23:16 on Friday the 13th (ARGH!) of May.  The two brightest stars are Castor and Pollux of Gemini and the moon was about 80% illuminated.  The exposure was 13 seconds at f5.6 and 400 ISO and the white balance was shoved all the way to the bluest end to try and combat sodium street lights.  I'm not actually sure what I should do about white balance - should look into that I guess!
