I have seen many sites that log and track lunar and solar eclipses, and which even have Google Earth overlays showing the various paths traced by the moon over the surface of the Earth, but only as they relate to eclipses.
To anyone's knowledge, has there ever been a graphic tracing of any kind done for lunar orbit over the surface of the Earth? Specifically, I am looking for a "Spirograph-like" tracing of a single 18.5996 year nodal cycle, using an imaginary line which intersects the center of gravity of both the Earth and the Moon, tracing this moving imaginary point over the surface of the Earth.
Even more specifically, I would like to convert this (as a vector drawing), using a plate carrée projection.
Anything? A resource, or someone that has already done this, or a program that would help me to accomplish the same thing?
Thanks in advance...
