    Based on the state vectors from the TLEs of SL-08 (epoch: 01348.858) and ISS before
    (epoch: 01349.838) and after (epoch: 01350.165) the manoeuvre yesterday, I get the
    following relative distances for 14:56:10 UTC today:
    7.2 km without avoidance procedure, and
    89.8 km with the manoeuvre.
    Since STS is ahead of the station, the rocket body will "cut" through the orbital paths.
    That would be an amazing view, both in orbit(?) and from ground. Unfortunately, it'll
    happen during night and not over my sky.
