I wasn't sure where to put this, so I'll just stick it here.
So basically, while using SE, I became curious as to whether or not I could see parallax in other stars in SE. Long story short, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised to find that I could. The next logical step is to see if I can calculate the distance to other stars using this.

That's it. It isn't really anything special but it shows the amount of detail in SE.

Well, it's a physical inevitability. SE is a 1:1 3D representation of the universe, with the size of Earth's orbit being accurate, as well as the distance of the stars. Therefore, it is impossible for parallax to be absent.

Guy builds a wasp sucking machine and the comments are full of people insulting him for being inhumane.



It's almost like people don't realize that insects have no higher brain function and are simply organic automatons.

That worked ridiculously well, though.

Does anyone know of a command line tool that can give me positions for stars for a given location and time? I need it for scripting, so no point and click programs will do. Or perhaps a C or Perl library which will do the calculations?

Would an Ubuntu package work? I've heard astronomical-almanac is pretty good.

Thanks! Aa came up when I googled, but I missed that it does stars, not just planetary objects.
