Triple conjunction

Around February 17.0, the two large Zenit rockets 85-97B (16182) and
88-102B (19650) will pass close to each other, in nearly co-planar
orbits. About 1 minute ahead of this pair, also in a very similar orbit
will be found 84-106B (15334). Although observation is rather restricted,
since Northern Hemisphere visibility will be possible only fairly close
to northern apex - 71deg., it may be of interest to determine just how
close these three rockets get.
