In the past, I have visually seen the space Shuttle & ISS in trail after undocking.
The cargo vessel is not a Soyuz, but rather a Dragon, bother of which are considerby smaller than the Shuttle. It could be possible if the conditions are right.

Wednesday the new cargoship is expected to arrive at the ISS.
I can see the ISS with the naked eye.
What about the soyouz etc, prior to docking?
Would love to see 2 moving stars, one following the other.
