ChiantiPy is a Python interface to the CHIANTI atomic database for astrophysical spectroscopy. The CHIANTI atomic database for astrophysical spectroscopy provides the information necessary to calculate the emission spectrum from hot plasmas. ChiantiPy provides several top-level classes to access the database and calculate continuum and emission line intensities.

BOTEC is a simple but useful calculator that assists with astrophysical, orbital mechanics, and space navigation calculations. It is a "back-of-the-envelope calculator" rather than an industrial-strength calculator, although this may change in the future. It is primarily intended for people familiar with physics and Python, and as such is unlikely to be useful to the average end user. It includes solar system data, and all values are strictly in SI units.

AstroBuffer is a CCD astrophotography image manipulation application. It can open FITS and SBIG (st9) files. Contrast is adjustable to view different backgrounds and ranges of an image. It can scale, shift, rotate, and zoom in and out. Images can be aligned based on two star alignment, and can be summed, subtracted, averaged, and divided. RGB color images can be created from three images. Images can be saved as FITS or as any format that QT supports.

Gregorian calendar 1582 is a small Python script to generate calendars for any year in the history greater or equal to one. The output format is the same as the Unix "cal" command. However, it supposes the Gregorian Reformation took place on October 4th, 1582, in contrast to the cal, which supposes the reformation took place on September 3rd, 1752.

Sunrise Sunset is a Python package that can determine the sunrise and sunset based on a given altitude zenith. It has two public methods. The first returns the sunrise and sunset in a tuple. The second returns True or False depending on whether the supplied date/time is during the night or day. The constructor takes three arguments, a date, latitude, and longitude. There is one keyword argument for changing the default zenith, which is set to "official". The zeniths are "official", "civil", "nautical", "amateur" (astronomical), and "astronomical". It does not rely on third party packages, but you may need something like pytz to create dates with timezone info.

Oroboros is an astrology application. It is based on the Swiss Ephemeris (pyswisseph) for planetary calculations, the Olson timezone database (pytz) for date and time resolution, and the Qt4 toolkit (PyQt4) for the graphical user interface.

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.

KAstrometry is an astrometry program for KDE. It is written in Python. It aims to be a good tool to make measurements of objects in space from images taken by CCD cameras. Such measurements might be used to find orbits of astroids or record the brightness of variable stars. One day, it should be able to record an object's position, detect stars, and find coordinates using star catalogs.
