Tried ITrack, SuM, and TRAK_SM. All three agreed perfectly, 2-3 figures
past the decimal point.
Tried the MOON.TXT keps. WISP choked on them. SATPC32 accepted them, but
the azimuth was about 4 degrees different, and the elevation off by about 15
degrees. Since SuM is correct, it looks like the pseudokeps are only close.

I just tested the keps below from moon.txt. SatPC accepts them ok, but
unfortunately here in Plains, Montana right now we have 100% overcast so
I can not sight the moon.
