windows default iconPyEphem for Windows Publisher's description

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

PyEphem provides scientific-grade astronomical computations for the Python programming language. Given a date and location on the Earth’s surface, it can compute the positions of the Sun and Moon, of the planets and their moons, and of any asteroids, comets, or earth satellites whose orbital elements the user can provide. Additional functions are provided to compute the angular separation between two objects in the sky, to determine the constellation in which an object lies, and to find the times at which an object rises, transits, and sets on a particular day.

The numerical routines that lie behind PyEphem are those from the wonderful XEphem astronomy application, whose author, Elwood Downey, generously gave permission for us to use them as the basis for PyEphem.

What's New in This Release:

В· Added a new next_pass() method to Observer that searches for when a satellite next rises, culminates, and sets.
· Added a compute_pressure() method to Observer which computes the standard atmospheric pressure at the observer’s current elevation. This function now gets called automatically on new city() objects before they are returned to the user.
В· Corrected the altitude of San Francisco as returned by city().
В· Improved the copyright message so that two more authors are credited.

System Requirements:

В· Python
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
