You can see the conversation - it is a standard TCP/IP proto. You can also see most of the "meta data" like IP or MAC.
But it is not possible afaik to see the content of the crypted HTTPS packets in wireshark.

http://blogs.sun.com/beuchelt/entry/decrypting_ssl_traffic_with_wireshark It says Wireshark can decrypt the conversation if I've the Server's Private Key.

But Its not possible to get Private key of a server Untill and Unless its owned by me.

only way to read https other than at the endpoints is to pull of a man in the middle attack, but the user will be notified of the changed certificate (and hopefully the big warning in firefox will put them off). I think most mitm attacks are done using ettercap and arp poisoning.
