Astronomical time keeping in Julia
AstroTime.jl provides a high-precision, time-scale aware,
DateTime-like data type which supports all commonly used astronomical time scales.
The package can be installed through Julia's package manager:
julia> import Pkg; Pkg.add("AstroTime")
# Create an Epoch based on the TT (Terrestial Time) scale tt = TTEpoch("2018-01-01T12:00:00") # Transform to TAI (International Atomic Time) tai = TAIEpoch(tt) # Transform to TDB (Barycentric Dynamical Time) tdb = TDBEpoch(tai) # Shift an Epoch by one day another_day = tt + 1days
