C++ interface for the MESA Astrophysics Library
The Solar Monitor fetch the plots from NOAA's SWPC. First public release coming soon.
Tools to analyse output from the stellar-evolution code ev/STARS/TWIN
The evTools package provides tools to manipulate and display output from the binary stellar-evolution code ev (also known as STARS and TWIN).
QDeblend3D is a dedicated software tool for the deblending of QSO and host galaxy emission in 3D datacubes obtained with optical IFU spectrographs. The GUI allows to control the process and to visualize the results with an integrated cube viewer.
Fortran library to compute positions of celestial bodies
libTheSky is a Fortran library to compute positions of celestial bodies (Moon, planets, stars) and events (conjunctions, eclipses). It forms the core of the software that produces the Dutch popular-astronomy website http://hemel.waarnemen.com
Galaxia is a code for generating a synthetic model of the galaxy. The input model can be analytical or one obtained from N-body simulations. The code outputs a catalog of stars according to user specified color magnitude limits.
Simulate gravity inside a virtual universe and wait to see galaxies colliding.
Libpsht is a collection of algorithms for efficient conversion between maps on the sphere and their spherical harmonic coefficients. It supports a wide range of pixelisations (including HEALPix, GLESP, and ECP). Development for this libary has stopped; its successor is libsharp (http://sourceforge.net/projects/libsharp).
SWIM is a special non-trivial software package that monitors solar activity and the Earth's geomagnetic activity in real-time. Solar Terrestrial Dispatch has released this formerly commercial software into the public domain.
An object orientated Perl applications framework for dealing with VOEvent messages.
A code for fast multi-dimensional density estimation . Instead of assuming an a-priori metric definition, it calculates a locally adaptive metric for each data point by using, a Shannon Entropy based, binary space partitioning scheme.
Note: This project is no longer maintained. A newer version of the program is at https://code.google.com/p/digest2/. Statistical ranging for short arc moving object astrometry. Accepts atstrometry in MPC 80 charcater observation format, rates objects on likelyhood that they are yet-unknown near Earth objects.
A client program compatible with the INDI standard (see http://indi.sourceforge.net) for remote telescope and device control. It works under Windows as well as Linux. It is writen in Python and uses the GTK in order to display the GUI.
Jaude is "Java pour les Astronomes Utilisateurs de Detecteurs Electroniques". Jaude is Eclipse RCP and plugin based. So it will provide an Eclipse interface for JSky library (http://archive.eso.org/JSky/).
Open source observatory control software
RTS2 is project to create an open source environment for control of a fully autonomous observatory. It is running about dozen fully autonomous observatories. Its modular design allow easily addition of new devices (to already huge supported HW list).
CosmicOS is a framework for creating stand-alone messages suitable for sending to ourselves in the distant future, or to use in SETI research. It is inspired by Hans Freudenthal's language, Lincos, and Carl Sagan's book, Contact.
The AAVSO Variable Star Registry -- an open-source web-based CMS for the controlled single-point management of public domain astronomical metadata on known and suspected variable stars.
N-body program for astrophysical simulations
python, SExtractor. A python module to read, write and manage SExtractor catalogs.
This is an application that computes the date and time in formats appropriate for astronomers - julian date, sidereal time, modified julian date, truncated julian date. Extremely accurate, includes correction for apparent sidereal time.
Ephemeris Framework is a set of .NET Framework libraries to provide a common base for those who want to create high precision astronomical programs or web pages.
sastrocam (simple astronomy camera) -- simple camera control for astro
sastrocam (simple astronomy camera) -- simple camera control for astronomical imaging in Linux. Provides a simple web interface to the camera that will function well for remote control over a low bandwidth link.
GBTIDL provides offline data reduction for spectral line data from the GBT, a single dish radio telescope. Although the GBTIDL code is open source, running it requires you to have your own IDL license and base package.
ephem68k is an astronomy software the TI-92 and TI Voyage 200 CAS systems. It calculates astronomical data like julian date, local sidereal time, full/new moons, ephemerides of fixed and solar objects and more. ephem68k is based on ephem 4.29 code.
This library compute earth satellites with Date, Position and TLEs( Three Lines Element).
