Notes
Wraps ERFA function
eraAper13
. Note that, unlike the erfa routine, the python wrapper does not change astrom in-place. The ERFA documentation is:- - - - - - - - - - e r a A p e r 1 3 - - - - - - - - - - In the star-independent astrometry parameters, update only the Earth rotation angle.

For example, JD(UT1)=2450123.7 could be expressed in any of these ways, among others: ut11 ut12 2450123.7 0.0 (JD method) 2451545.0 -1421.3 (J2000 method) 2400000.5 50123.2 (MJD method) 2450123.5 0.2 (date & time method) The JD method is the most natural and convenient to use in cases where the loss of several decimal digits of resolution is acceptable. The J2000 and MJD methods are good compromises between resolution and convenience. The date & time method is best matched to the algorithm used: maximum precision is delivered when the ut11 argument is for 0hrs UT1 on the day in question and the ut12 argument lies in the range 0 to 1, or vice versa. 2) If the caller wishes to provide the Earth rotation angle itself, the function eraAper can be used instead. One use of this technique is to substitute Greenwich apparent sidereal time and thereby to support equinox based transformations directly. 3) This is one of several functions that inserts into the astrom structure star-independent parameters needed for the chain of astrometric transformations ICRS <-> GCRS <-> CIRS <-> observed. The various functions support different classes of observer and portions of the transformation chain: functions observer transformation eraApcg eraApcg13 geocentric ICRS <-> GCRS eraApci eraApci13 terrestrial ICRS <-> CIRS eraApco eraApco13 terrestrial ICRS <-> observed eraApcs eraApcs13 space ICRS <-> GCRS eraAper eraAper13 terrestrial update Earth rotation eraApio eraApio13 terrestrial CIRS <-> observed Those with names ending in "13" use contemporary ERFA models to compute the various ephemerides. The others accept ephemerides supplied by the caller. The transformation from ICRS to GCRS covers space motion, parallax, light deflection, and aberration. From GCRS to CIRS comprises frame bias and precession-nutation. From CIRS to observed takes account of Earth rotation, polar motion, diurnal aberration and parallax (unless subsumed into the ICRS <-> GCRS transformation), and atmospheric refraction.
