  Description     : Compute positions of the planets and stars
 PyEphem provides an ephem Python package for performing high-precision
 astronomy computations. The underlying numeric routines are coded in C
 and are the same ones that drive the popular XEphem astronomy
 application, whose author, Elwood Charles Downey, generously gave
 permission for their use in PyEphem. The name ephem is short for the
 word ephemeris, which is the traditional term for a table giving the
 position of a planet, asteroid, or comet for a series of dates.

This package will maintained within the Debian Astronomy Working Group.
A git repository is created on alioth [1].
