Working on a side project using machine learning and the solar system (using n-body simulator).

Let's say I have two bodies with coordinates:

Code:

```
Body1: x=-1.42790218981 y=1.4003882805 z=0.0
Body2: x=0.983274588755 y=0.0477301860159 z=0.0
```

and their respective orbits are:

Code:

```
B1: a=2.00000001449 e=7.84859710126e-09 inc=0.0 Omega=0.0 omega=2.75273162508 f=-0.386809335815
B2: a=1.36522588428 e=0.41230308113 inc=0.0 Omega=0.0 omega=1.24417006229 f=-1.19566606343
```

Can I figure out the coordinates of Body2 anywhere along the orbit? I'm trying to find how the smallest distance between the two bodies if they continue pursuing their orbits?

Please let me know if I need to clear up some details.
