plot_sky_24hr(target, observer, time, delta=<Quantity 1. h>, ax=None, style_kwargs=None, north_to_east_ccw=True, grid=True, az_label_offset=<Quantity 0. deg>, center_time_style_kwargs=None)¶
Plots target positions in the sky with respect to the observer’s location over a twenty-four hour period centered on
The celestial body of interest.
- observer: `~astroplan.Observer`
The person, telescope, observatory, etc. doing the observing.
If pass in an
Timeobject with just one instance in time, whether it be a scalar or an array (e.g.
plot_skywill return plot at one instance in time. If pass in an
Timeobject with multiple instances in time (e.g.
Time(['2000-1-1', '2000-1-2'])) will show positions plotted at the exact times specified.
Interval between times plotted.
Axesor None, optional.
- style_kwargsdict or None, optional.
A dictionary of keywords passed into
scatterto set plotting styles.
- north_to_east_ccwbool, optional.
True by default, meaning that azimuth is shown increasing counter-clockwise (CCW), or with North at top, East at left, etc. To show azimuth increasing clockwise (CW), set to False.
- gridbool, optional.
True by default, meaning that grid is drawn.
DANGER: It is not recommended that you change the default behavior, as to do so makes it seem as if N/E/S/W are being decoupled from the definition of azimuth (North from az = 0 deg., East from az = 90 deg., etc.). An offset for azimuth labels from the North label. A positive offset will increase in the same direction as azimuth (see
