IRISPy is a SunPy-affiliated package that provides the tools to read in and analyze data from the IRIS solar-observing satellite in Python.

The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph is a NASA-funded Small Explorer which uses a high-frame-rate ultraviolet imaging spectrometer to make observations of the Sun. It provides 0.3 arcsec angular resolution and sub-angstrom spectral resolution.
