PyNOVAS

PyNOVAS allows you to calculate the position and movement of the sun, moon, planets, and stars with great precision using Python. It is based on the NOVAS software used by United States Naval Office (USNO) to produce the 'Astronomical Almanac' and 'MICA'. Ephemerides are supplied by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). You can use this software for Celestial Navigation, and also as a basis for controlling astronomical equipment.
