If your weather in UK will be clear ISS will be visible about 1030pm at about 10-20 degrees up from horizon.

And if STS-121 launches tonight, it should be visible at 2241 BST for 2 minutes in the SW.

Do you have the elevation and track for the shuttle as visible from the UK?

It really depends upon your coordinates from your viewpoint

For ISs it will travel roughly southwest to southeast anywhere from 10-20 degree from horizon.

Shuttle would be somewhat similar but it looks increasingly likely will not launch today (weather,thruster probs) - even though crew are being transferred to pad now as I write
