SunPy is an open-source Python library for solar physics data analysis. See for more information about the project.

For some examples of using SunPy see our gallery.


The recommended way to install SunPy is with conda. To install SunPy once conda is installed run the following two commands:

$ conda config --append channels conda-forge
$ conda install sunpy

If you want to develop SunPy you will need to install from git. The best way to do this is to create a new conda environment and install the git version of SunPy in it:

$ conda config --append channels conda-forge
$ conda create -n sunpy-dev python sunpy hypothesis pytest-mock
$ source activate sunpy-dev
$ conda remove sunpy
$ git clone sunpy-git
$ cd sunpy-git
$ pip install -e .

For detailed installation instructions, see the installation guide in the SunPy docs.


Here is a quick example of plotting an AIA image:

>>> import
>>> from import AIA_171_IMAGE
>>> aia =
>>> aia.peek()
