SphericalPlot3D: shifting the origin

I am plotting d-orbitals using SphericalPlot3D, here is the code for
the xy orbital:

SphericalPlot3D[(Sin[\Theta] Cos[\Phi])(Sin[\Theta]Sin[\Phi]), {\
[Theta], 0,
   Pi}, {\[Phi], 0, 2 Pi}, Mesh -> False, Axes -> False,
  Boxed -> False, PlotRange -> All];

I would like to be able to show two of such orbitals displaced by some
vector. Is there a simple way to do it, without having to solve for R
(\Theta,\Phi) for a displaced orbital?
