Lightkurve has a lot of unit tests which access the data archive at MAST. This causes a number of problems:

  • many of our tests require internet access;

Adstring outputs the wrong string when dec starts with negative zero (i.e. -0.5), while radec converts correctly.

>> radec(15, -0.5)
(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, -0.0, 30.0, 0.0)

The bug seems to be this line in adstring.jl:

dec_string = @sprintf("%+03.2d %02d %s", dec_deg, dec_min, dec_sec_string)

which ignores the negative zero.
