Can anyone help me with Trajectory equations in both x(t) and y(t)? Or just the ellipse Radius and Y Radius of both and the adjustment since the ellipse is not centered? I really need it sad

What do you need it for? The Earth and Moon have complex orbits, for which ellipses would only be an approximation. The Moon also doesn't orbit in the same plane that the Earth does, so you would need a z(t).

I need it to implement in a 3D Formula Spline so i can allign the Earth and Moon in their respective orbits and yes i can also use z(t) if needed.
