Add feature for converting ra/dec or az/el coordinates to ecef coordinates. Includes method for conversion of ra/dec to az/el from which ecef coordinates can be calculated, a third parameter (slant range) is required for the conversion in the current version of the code. The output is printed in [t,x,y,z] format with time in UNIX format and x,y,z in meters. Library pymap3d added to requirements. Contains commits of pr#165(WIP: Parsing for UK & IOD file formats)by Krishna Birla.https://github.com/aerospaceresearch/orbitdeterminator/pull/165
Files changed: created satobs.py
Purpose: functions to parse and print UK & IOD format data and print corresponding ecef coordinates.
