Description : prediction and visualisation of asteroidal occultations
Observations of stellar occultation by asteroids will make significant
impact in several areas of astronomy. Observations of these events by
professional and amateur astronomers are extremly important since thay
can provide unique information about the size of asteroids and improve
their orbit elements dramatically.
LinOccult computes predictions of such occultation of stars by
asteroids. It also visualises the trajectories of the asteroid's
shadows on the earth or directs astronomers to future eclipses for
a given coordinate.
Packaging will be handled openly at the pkg-escience Alioth project.
Comments from astronomers are most welcome.
