One useful tool for observations is a tool for ephemeris calculations, for example the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets and etc.

So it would be good if such a tool can be included in Gnuastro. For example a command like the following could give the position of the Sun and the Moon at the current date and position on earth:

$ astephemeris --body=sun --body=moon

This issue was brought up by Christopher Howard.

As a starting point, we might be able to learn a lot from astropy's implementation.
