Can anyone help me with the following lunar tables:

2003 Mar 1 2452699.5 21.290 -20.76 15071 315.39 -4.75 26095 +18512 -15896 - 9248 W 25 11.103

2003 Mar 2 2452700.5 22.140 -16.78 15197 328.14 -4.98 26313 +22265 -11786 -7598 W 14 11.888

2003 Mar 3 2452701.5 22.941 -12.13 15318 340.71 -4.96 26522 +24939 - 7098 -5575 E 5 12.622

2003 Mar 4 2452702.5 23.701 - 7.06 15428 353.08 -4.70 26714 +26430 - 2074 -3284 E 11 13.320

2003 Mar 5 2452703.5 0.434 - 1.79 15524 5.26 -4.23 26879 +26693 + 3044 - 841 E 22 13.996

I clipped them from the disc that I got with the ephemeris: Planetary and Lunar Co-Ordinates. Obviously the first part is the date. I think the next bit is also the date in Julian days. The rest is lost on me.

I am more used to the Nautical Almanack which gives the position from the longitude of Greenwich and the latitude of the equator. How do I correct them or whatever the term is, for that?
