Keplerian elements for the Moon have to be regenerated
now and then, since the Moon doesn't actually follow the
kind of orbit modelled by satellite tracking programs.  So
what you need is a program to generate Moon keps on
demand.  A program like that (for DOS) is available in the
AMSAT archives at

That zip file also includes elements for the Sun.
