Eclipse Scraper

Python module for scraping NASA's eclipse site into usable CZML documents

Overview

This module is designed for scraping tabular data for the tracks of eclipse events from NASA's eclipse website (http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/) and converting such events into CZML documents for display with Cesium. This module is developed in tandem with EclipseTracks.org (source).

Eclipse Predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA's GSFC.

Dependencies

This module requires czml, the Python CZML reader/writer.

Testing

Run tests in the top-level directory like so:

python setup.py test

NOTE: EclipseScraper is built explicitly for python 3.3. It may or may not work for python 2.x.

Eclipse Scraper is continually tested with Travis CI.
