Python ctypes wrapper around the SOFA astronomical library
pysofa is a Python module for accessing International Astronomical Union’s SOFA library from python. SOFA (Standards of Fundamental Astronomy) is a set of algorithms and procedures that implement standard models used in fundamental astronomy.
pysofa is not a port of SOFA routines but a wrapper around the SOFA_C library. Thus, no calculations are made into the pysofa software, they are all delegated to the underlying SOFA_C library.
