Tracking the moon is marginally possible, since it orbits the earth.  It 
is far enough away that effects of other planets' orbits become 
significant, so don't count on NASA-type elements being accurate for 
long ..

Tracking the sun would be substantially more difficult .. ;-)

Heard from a flight instructor:
"The only dumb question is the one you DID NOT ask, resulting in my 
going out and having to identify your bits and pieces in the midst of 
torn and twisted metal."
