Knowing when the lunar apogee and perigees are is very
useful. For instance, when the perigee (closest point)
happens, the moon is very close travelling very fast
and this has a large effect on our atmosphere, often
causing storms and earthquakes - especially when
combined with the full/new moon (think: net
gravitational force extremes) and northern/southern
declination as happened in Indonesia recently (and,
incidentally, similarly 9 lunar nodal cycles ago in
1833 in roughly the same place).
Ideally I'd like to be able to see the velocity and
distance from the earth (obviously, related ;)) of the
moon in the details page.
Does astrolib have that information available?
