Just had a look for the pass predicted at 18:12 12/21 = 12/22 02:12.
Didn't see it with unaided eye! Limiting magnitude about 3 in that
bright moonlight ;-). tells me that
HST is docked "into its carrier at the back of the shuttle's payload
bay, where it will remain until Saturday". I guess Discovery is flying
"upside down", & that this orientation is dark for me ...

Did see ISS and 23088 SL-16 R/B.

Best, Mark
