Hi, I've started working on a simple jabber bot intended for astronomy. Bot is written in Python and the sources are on GitHub https://github.com/amigur/skybber. Current bot's JID is firstname.lastname@example.org. The bot should be helpfull when you need get a quick info about Iridium flares, ISS passes, moon/sun/planets rise/set and the length of astronomical night in specified locations.
You can register yourself by sending "reg" command. There is a list of available commands:
addloc <name> <longitude> <latitude> - add user location. iri - show Iridium flares iss - show ISS passes jup [date] [location] - show Jupiter ephemeris loc <name> - set the location as the new default location . lsloc - show the list of locations mar [date] [location] - show Mars ephemeris mer [date] [location] - show Mercury ephemeris moon [date] [location] - show Moon ephemeris night [date] [location] - show the real night, taking into consideration the Moon rising/setting prof - show user profile reg - register user into skybber rmloc <name> - remove location. sat [date] [location] - show Saturn ephemeris satinfo - information about satellite identified by satellite id satpass - show satellite passes identified by satellite id sun [date] [location] - show sun info tw [date] [location] - show begin/end of current twilight unregister - unregister user from skybber ven [date] [location] - show Venus ephemeris
DATE FORMATS: ‘YYYY-MM-DD’ or ‘YYYY/MM/DD example: 2012/11/11’ LOCATION FORMATS: - angular, example : 14.86524 50.78461 - geographic coordinations, example : 50°46'1.105"N 15°3'52.885"E - user location, example: prague
