The more data that is accumulated, the more the average converges to the theoretical prediction.

The first 3 lunar draconic (i.e. nodal) satellite harmonics (bottom red) clearly emerge from the entirety of the data -- at 0.423, 1.423, and 2.423 cycles/year. Harmonics such as this will not appear for any resonant phenomena, as those are required to be integral multiples of the fundamental frequency. This is clearly forced mixing (heterodyning) of a tidal signal with an annual impulse.
