(Earth satellite) TLE's can not really be made for comets,
since they are not in earth orbit. Although you could try
elcor (
the comet moves faster than a satellite, so an approximate
orbit would be too close to Earth, and show considerable
daily parallax.

The Moon is more reasonable (and I have seen some "TLE's"),
but why not use Rob Matson's SkyMap, which computes and/or
displays Moon position to arcsecond accuracy (or better?)
