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.

x10ephem computes sunrise and sunset times. It consists of a library and an assortment of utilities.

Combined with an X10 interface like HEYU or X10, this allows the scheduling of lighting events to follow the changing seasons and daylight savings time automatically. This application does not depend on X10; it can be used for any crontab entry you like.
