suncalc - A tiny JavaScript library for calculating sun/moon positions and phases.

  •    Javascript

SunCalc is a tiny BSD-licensed JavaScript library for calculating sun position, sunlight phases (times for sunrise, sunset, dusk, etc.), moon position and lunar phase for the given location and time, created by Vladimir Agafonkin (@mourner) as a part of the SunCalc.net project. Most calculations are based on the formulas given in the excellent Astronomy Answers articles about position of the sun and the planets. You can read about different twilight phases calculated by SunCalc in the Twilight article on Wikipedia.

stellarium - Stellarium is a free GPL software which renders realistic skies in real time with OpenGL

  •    C++

Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

meteor-astronomy - Model layer for Meteor

  •    Javascript

The Astronomy package introduces the Model Layer into Meteor applications. It can also be named the Object Document Mapping system (ODM) or for people coming from relational database environments the Object-Relational Mapping system (ORM). Astronomy extends MongoDB documents with functionalities defined in a schema. Astronomy documentation can be found here.

Poliastro - Astrodynamics in Python

  •    Python

poliastro is an open source pure Python package dedicated to problems arising in Astrodynamics and Orbital Mechanics, such as orbit propagation, solution of the Lambert's problem, conversion between position and velocity vectors and classical orbital elements and orbit plotting, focusing on interplanetary applications.

suncalc - A Haxe library for calculating sun/moon positions and phases

  •    Haxe

The SunCalc module allows to calculate sun position, sunlight phases (times for sunrise, sunset, dusk, etc.), moon position and lunar phase for the given location and time. SunCalc was ported to Haxe by Robin ypid Schneider to allow using it in a planed rewrite of the opening hours library.

DiskJockey - Protoplanetary Disk Modeling for Dynamical Mass Derivation

  •    Julia

This package derives dynamical masses for T Tauri stars using the Keplerian motion of their circumstellar disks, applied to radio interferometric data from the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) and the Submillimeter Array (SMA). If you use this code or a derivative of it in your research, we would really appreciate it if you cited the first paper in our series, Czekala et al. 2015 ApJ, 806 154C. See an explanation of how dynamical mass measurements work.

cr2fits - Convert DSLR RAW Images to Astronomical FITS Images

  •    Python

A script to convert RAW images (Canon, Nikon etc.) to FITS images. It extracts only one color channel of the RAW image, and writes the necessary EXIF information to the FITS header. Either use gcc -o dcraw -O4 dcraw.c -lm -ljasper -ljpeg -llcms2 or gcc -o dcraw -O4 dcraw.c -lm -DNODEPS to compile it. You can then copy dcraw to your path (ex. /usr/local/bin). In order to copy to your path, you'll probably need root privileges.

astropy-tutorials - Tutorials for the Astropy Project

  •    Jupyter

This repository contains tutorials for the Astropy project. These are typically longer-form, more narrative presentations of functionality in the Astropy core package and any affiliated packages. The tutorials are therefore different from the Astropy core package documentation, which presents a more structured and exhaustive view of the core package. To see the tutorials rendered as static web pages, see the Astropy tutorials site.
