sunpy.coordinates.ephemeris.get_body_heliographic_stonyhurst(body, time='now', observer=None)[source] [edit on github]

Return a HeliographicStonyhurst frame for the location of a solar-system body at a specified time. The location can be corrected for light travel time to an observer.


out (HeliographicStonyhurst) – Location of the solar-system body in the HeliographicStonyhurst frame


There is no correction for aberration due to observer motion. For a body close to the Sun in angular direction relative to the observer, the correction can be negligible because the apparent location of the body will shift in tandem with the Sun.
