A just ran a plot of the initial ground track for the shuttle and it 
looks like it will pass over England and then into sunlight as it crosses 
the French coast about 10 min after launch (approx 5:55 UTC I think). The 
shuttle and External tank should be visible.

It also looks like Mir should preceed the shuttle by 10 min or so, 
although the exact time will depend on the latest elements. Great viewing 
opportunity indeed!
