Yes and no.The predictions made by quantum theory are fully consistent with observations on macroscopic objects. Classical physics can be derived from quantum physics, but not v-v.Can we use Schrodinger equation to describe movements of the earth's moons?
No, 'we' can't do it because 'we' don't have access to the full state of Earth, its moons, and everything that influences them.
Yes, because despite Earth and moons not being a closed system, you didn't specify an equation for just the local system, so a full equation would describe those movements.
Sort of, because that Schrodinger equation has more than one solution, so all you get is a probabilistic answer, and that answer is a description of those movements. No classic prediction could do better.
