    Rob Mastson wrote a program called cola, that will tell you how close they came to each other, in
    km.
    
    You can download it from

    Using these orbits
    
    ATLAS CENTAUR R/B
    1 03598U 68110B   04217.89394203  .00000224  00000-0  58707-4 0  8328
    2 03598  34.9944 174.0227 0051819 354.0302   5.9770 14.52030317882657
    SL-8 R/B
    1 04139U 69091B   04217.19029789  .00000094  00000-0  25740-4 0  9660
    2 04139  74.0319  92.3166 0005554 280.8470  79.2070 14.60244806842709
    
    I first used stk, to compute the info, they came within 35 km of each other.
    
    But here's some of the output from rob's program.
    
    Satellites in range of ATLAS CENTAUR R/B:    1
    
    Date       UTC Time   Norad   Name       Range (km)
