Calculation of the Distance to the Moons Apogee/Perigee ?
I want to calculate whether the perigee / apogee of the Moon always takes place at the exact same distances (radius to Earth) as measured by the LLR (Lunar Laser Ranging).
I trust that we know the size of the orbit of the moon very exactly, and also that the orbit is growing larger.
But I want to check whether calculation of the perigee / apogee happens the exact same distance as measured, to test if there should be any (periodical) distance (radius) anomaly.
My questions are;
