i'm not true programmer and therefore I'm looking for a module that help me to calculate , in a simple way, the position of the planets and lunar node in heliocentric and geocentric mode. Now I'm using external software and use the swiss ephemeris pdf.
ex from swiss pdf:
date 2017 08 24 venus on (6'28 gemini) helio therefore 66'28 on 360 dial, 27'24 cancer geocentric , therefore 117'24 on 360 dial
Can astropy calculate these? eventually , show a simple code.
Plus, there is a function that count the total movement of a single or the distance of two planets, in degrees between two dates?
ex: from 2007 07 14 to 2011 01 18, mars moved 618'43 geocentric (360+258'43).
