    Thanks to Andrew Yee for posting this National Optical Astronomy 
    Observatories (NOAO) press release to the newsgroup: "Satellites 
    Spanning the Sky: Solar Scientist Photographs Distant Commercial 
    Satellites with Basic Camera Equipment".  
    The article begins, "Using an off-the-shelf camera set for a long 
    exposure and satellite data freely available on the Internet, 
    solar scientist Bill Livingston has developed a dependable method 
    for taking pictures of commercial communications satellites 
    hovering high above Earth."  
    The press release and links to photos can be found at this location:

    The photo was taken on January 3, but I can't find a specific time.  
    They are mostly geostationary satellites, but there are two 
    unidentified crossers, and one of them is described in the smaller 
    section photo as a "tumbler".
