Ephemerides (singular: ephemeris) are tables of values that give the positions of astronomical objects in the sky at a given point in time. Object positions are written in terms of right ascension and declination. Davy Wybiral has created the Ephemeris API as a method of querying NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) planetary ephemerides, which are generally created to support spacecraft missions to other planets. The Astro-Phys.com Ephemeris service can be accessed using RESTful calls issued in JSON format.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
