wis.py gives satellite positions at requested times. It manages kernel downloads. It requires astropy and spicepy.

Project description

MPC wis.py Project

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/wis.svg https://img.shields.io/travis/matthewjohnpayne/wis.svg Documentation Status

wis.py tells you the position of a satellite (e.g. in heliocentric coordinates).

wis.py uses JPL spice kernels, so you need spicypy.

wis.py goes and gets the spice-kernels if you don’t have them.

wis.py is essentially a means to automate the retrieval of useful spice-kernels. All of the positional calculations are handled using spice/spiceypy.

wis.py does not know about all satellites.

So far it only knows about: * TESS * K2 * CASSINI

wis.py is very light & wispy …
