    Pretty high, if it has manoeuvred.
    
    If it is in the 70001 orbit, then it will pass ~0.9 deg below Procyon at
    05:26:00 UTC.
    
    If it is in the 70002 orbit, then it will pass ~1.9 deg below Procyon at
    05:28:09 UTC.
    
    Most likely it will pass somewhere between those extremes.
