Out of about 4000 satellites, the 2 most circular are:

19508  88 86A  ecc=0000097 35794-35795 km
19671  88106B      0000010 666-666 km

88086  A
1 19508U 88086  A 95324.01492477 -.00000300  00000-0  10000-3 0   179
2 19508   0.0390 105.4434 0000097  91.0943   3.3959  1.00268584 26405
88106  B
1 19671U 88106  B 95334.24686766  .00000060  00000-0  97511-5 0    03
2 19671  56.9760 110.1146 0000010 288.0998  71.9002 14.70781741    07

Is that 'very close' enough?
