I don't see any reason, people couldn't spot the light coming from the upper stage.

Only problem, I seem to see, is that the rocket will be low in altitude, so won't be high in elevation for people trying to see it.

 I'm curious about the possible
 visibility along the Atlantic Seaboard of  
 next Thursday's Cygnus CRS Orb-4 launch from Cape
 Canaveral.  Obviously for  
 several minutes after launch, the vehicle will be readily
 visible over the  
 Southeast US, but what then?  Would a single engine
 Centaur rocket be  
 readily evident from the Middle Atlantic and Northeast US?
