Beautiful flare under Saturn 'Iridium 31' not provided for in Heavens-Above.
It is that had already been saved the camera and I had moved away a bit,
luckily not too much, and at least I could photograph the anti-flare. This
was enough to know which satellite was. Without being accurate data, I can
give the following:
To an extent provided between -1 and -2, only a little above (North) where
the trail begins satellite, you can reach the stars joining Theta Ophiuchi
and Pi Scorpii and the junction with the path of the satellite. The maximum
brightness or more negative magnitude is probably a little further north
(and closer to Saturn). Mirrors for the crossing position I have indicated
are of (28.5 °, 132,4º).

35.8389ºN, 2.4499ºW, Almería (Spain).
