sunpy.coordinates.sun.sky_position(t='now', equinox_of_date=True)[source]

Returns the apparent position of the Sun (right ascension and declination) on the celestial sphere using the equatorial coordinate system, referred to the true equinox of date (as default). Corrections for nutation and aberration (for Earth motion) are included.
