Moon data library and API server

Project description

Cerridwen provides data on the moon that is suitable for both astronomical and astrological purposes. It comes with a simple command-line utility and a JSON server, but is also designed to serve as a basis for your own application.

The motivation for this package is to have a reliable open-source library and API that provides data on the moon and, eventually, other planetary bodies at a certain point in time.

Features

  • Get comprehensive data on the sun and moon at almost any point in time
  • Rely on the high precision of the NASA JPL ephemeris
  • Make use of a powerful numpy-based algorithm for planetary event finding, (e.g. full moon, squares of planets etc.)
  • Work with Julian and ISO dates
  • Use Cerridwen’s JSON API to ensure loose coupling
  • Extend Cerridwen with ease to suit your own needs
