Can you see double flyby of Discovery/STS-128 and ISS?

The space shuttle Discovery lifted off from Florida at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, August 28, 2009, for its journey to the International Space Station. However, the first complete test firing of the new Ares 1 rocket was canceled after a power unit failed with only 20 seconds left in the countdown.
