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.
Good luck

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.
