The two can be seen (weather permitting) as they glide over the US the evening of March 8th. Below is orbit path #1 at 6:23:44 pm CST and 7:24:14 EST 08MAR2011. The YELLOW circle around ISS/Discovery is the footprint of visibility. Where the RED and GREEN lines meet is where the orbiters will fly into the earth's shadow and disappear.
