Time (sunpy.time)#

sunpy.time contains helpers for converting strings to astropy.time.Time objects and handling common operations on these objects. As well as this a TimeRange object is provided for representing a period of time and performing operations on that range.

sunpy.time Package#


find_time(string, format)

Return iterator of occurrences of date formatted with format in string.

is_time(time_string[, time_format])

Returns true if the input is a valid date/time representation.

is_time_equal(t1, t2)

Work around for astropy/astropy#6970.

is_time_in_given_format(time_string, time_format)

Tests whether a time string is formatted according to the given time format.


Returns the number of Julian centuries since J1900.0 (noon on 1900 January 0).

parse_time(time_string, *[, format])

Takes a time input and will parse and return a astropy.time.Time.


TimeRange(a[, b, format])

A class to create and handle time ranges.

TimeTaiSeconds(val1, val2, scale, precision, ...)

SI seconds from 1958-01-01 00:00:00, which includes UTC leap seconds.

TimeUTime(val1, val2, scale, precision, ...)

UT seconds from 1979-01-01 00:00:00 UTC, ignoring leap seconds.
