diff_rot(duration, latitude[, rot_type, ...])

This function computes the change in longitude over days in degrees.

solar_rotate_coordinate(coordinate[, ...])

Given a coordinate on the Sun, calculate where that coordinate maps to as seen by a new observer at some later or earlier time, given that the input coordinate rotates according to the solar rotation profile.

differential_rotate(smap[, observer, time])

Warp a GenericMap to take into account both solar differential rotation and the changing location of the observer.
