Tomorrow morning at 6:38 will be a good time to see the International Space Station with the shuttle trailing it by a few degrees. At 215 miles altitude you can't see any detail; they're two bright objects moving across the sky.

I use to see it piggybacked on a 747 when landing at what was then Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio. My office was under the approach glide path for the runway. It looked like it was going to land on your building. That thing is HUGE.
