Example notebooks for pywwt

This repository contains example notebooks for the pywwt package, which provides access to the AAS WorldWide Telescope inside Python and Jupyter environments.

🚀🚀 Click here to run these examples in the cloud! 🚀🚀

Note: it is usually fast to launch a notebook server, but if updates were recently merged into this repository, you may have to wait a few minutes for the backing software images to be rebuilt.

Once you’ve launched a cloud server, you can upload and run your own notebooks as shown in this YouTube video. (Note that while the video shows an older organization of this notebook collection, the general technique still applies.)

Testing the BinderHub infrastructure locally

If you’d like to make changes to this repository and want to test how they’ll work on BinderHub, you can do so by installing and using jupyter-repo2docker — assuming your machine also has Docker installed. Just run:

$ jupyter-repo2docker /path/to/pywwt-notebooks

to build an image of this repository and launch it as a server. To test the JupyterLab environment as opposed to classic Jupyter, open up the URL suggested by the jupyter-repo2docker command and change its path to /lab instead of /tree.


Authorship information for each notebook is included in a statement at the end of each. If you contribute improvements to an existing notebook, you are strongly encouraged to add your name!


The AAS WorldWide Telescope system is a .NET Foundation project managed by the non-profit American Astronomical Society (AAS). Work on WWT has been supported by the AAS, the US National Science Foundation (grants 1550701 and 1642446), the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and Microsoft.
