Apparently ISRO's Chandrayaan-2 orbiter and NASA's LRO narrowly avoided a possible conjunction event in Lunar orbit due to timely assessment and action of both agencies.

Is this first of its kind event or there have been other instances where possibility of collision between lunar orbiters was detected and avoided?
