    Apollo 7 and 9 were earth orbital. And on the others, the spacecraft orbited 
    earth about once after liftoff before translunar injection.

    Do they exist ?  TLE=Two line *orbital* elements.  The Apollo Lunar flights
    were not exactly Earth Orbital flights I think.
    
    Or were the Apollo flights launched into a very exentric orbit with the
    Moon close to apogee of this orbital plane ?
