PyEphem 3.7.5.1

PyEphem provides scientific-grade astronomical computations for the Python programming language.
PyEphem project provides scientific-grade astronomical computations for the Python programming language.

Given an arbitrary date and location on Earth, it can compute the positions of the sun, moon, and planets as well as any asteroids, comets, or earth satellites whose orbital elements the user can provide.

There are additional functions for computing the angular separation between two objects in the sky, determining the constellation in which an object lies, and finding the times at which an object rises, transits, and sets on a particular day.

What's New in version 3.7.3.3
  • A new version of PyEphem is available, that includes not only a bugfix, but a small feature addition. The fixed bug is that the tilt of Saturn's rings is now computed correctly; before, the values being returned by Saturn "earth_tilt" and "sun_tilt" were unfortunately not correct. The new feature is that Jupiter has "central meridian longitude" attributes now, both for System I and System II, so that those interested in the Great Red Spot and other cloud features can determine what part of Jupiter is pointed towards us; see the Quick Reference section on Jupiter for details.
