This page shows a set of graphs showing some astronomical facts
related to the position and location of our house.
These graphs were produced with the aid of the SLALIB astronomical libraries, some custom code in Python, and GNUPLOT.
The SLALIB package is available at http://star-www.rl.ac.uk/. It provides very high precision astronomical libraries that are highly portable.
GNUPLOT is an excellent library for producing graphs, and can handle much more complex cases than these. It can be found at http://www.gnuplot.info.
