A program that computes the ephemerides.
A program that calculates your astronomical ephemerides!
Keep in mind that Kosmorro is still in alpha development stage and is not considered as stable.
Arch Linux, Manjaro…
Kosmorro is available in the AUR.
Kosmorro is available on PyPI, a repository dedicated to Python.
python-pip on your system and invoke the following command:
pip install kosmorro.
Currently, macOS does not provide Python 3, so you will first have to install it.
If you don't have it, install HomeBrew, then install Python 3:
brew install python.
This will install Python 3 and its PIP on your system. Note that their executables are called
Now, you can install Kosmorro with your PIP:
pip3 install kosmorro.
Kosmorro being at an early-stage development, Windows is not supported officially for now.
Before you run Kosmorro in your development environment, check you have installed these programs on your system:
- Python ≥ 3.7.0 (needed run Kosmorro)
- PIP3 (needed for package management, usually installed among with Python 3)
- Pipenv (needed to manage the virtual environment)
Clone this repository and run
pipenv sync to install all the dependencies.
Then, run Kosmorro by invoking

For comfort, you may want to invoke

By default, it will give you the current Moon phase and, if any, the events that will occur today.
To get the rise, culmination and set of the objects of the Solar system, you will need to give it your position on Earth: get your current coordinates (with OpenStreetMap for instance), and give them to Kosmorro by invoking it with the following parameters:
--latitude=X --longitude=Y (replace
X by the latitude and
Y by the longitude).
Kosmorro has a lot of available options. To get a list of them, run
kosmorro --help, or read its manual with
Note: the first time it runs, Kosmorro will download some important files needed to make the computations. They are stored in a cache folder named
.kosmorro-cache located in your home directory (
/home/<username> on Linux,
/Users/<username> on macOS).
Exporting to PDF
Kosmorro can export the computation results to PDF files, but this feature requires first that you install some additional dependencies. Before you use this feature, make sure you have installed a LaTeX distribution:
- Linux: install TeXLive through your packages manager. Kosmorro just needs the minimal installation, you don't need any extension.
Note: on Ubuntu 20.04+, you will also need the
- macOS: install basic version of MacTeX:
- from the official website, choose the smaller download
- with Brew:
brew install basictex
These dependencies are not installed by default, because they take a lot of place and are not necessary if you are not interested in generating PDF files.
