    TLE sets for objects 2008-053B and 2010-027A with epoch 231.6114 propagated 
    for timeframe from 16:48 till 18:48, August 19, give relative distance 
    between 3.40 and 0.23 km and relative velocity between 2.88 and 0.95 m/s, 
    with minimal values achieved at 18:11.
    Of course we do not know of actual maneuvers by Shijian-12 after the two 
    orbits were measured and calculated but even without new maneuvers we can 
    recognize it as successful approach!
