This is VERY close to the numbers I got from doing this in Mathematica based on the equations from (as I recall) the NASA page :

AND, despite a good bit of reading [ , ] I was not able to find a ready source which gave me a simple formula without solving a bunch of equations.

But the calculator gave the same result that I got earlier on my own.

SO! Failaka is a quarter million kilometers from Tylos.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
