Question:
I am currently teaching lunar topics and want my kids to graph the celestial longitude and distance of the moon for about a month in time using polar coordinate paper. I cannot seem to find the data I need to do this for the current time and I do not want to use "stock" date. Is there a site where this information is available?



Replies:
I am not sure you will find exactly what you want, but good places to start are the following:
