sunburn currently works with Python 3; compatibility with Python 2 was not tested.


  • numpy >= 1.12
  • scipy >= 0.19
  • matplotlib >= 2.0
  • astropy >= 2.0.2
  • astroquery >= 0.3.7.dev4234
  • astroplan

Note: The development version of astroquery is necessary because of a specific implementation of queries to the NASA Exoplanet Archive. In order to install this development version, you will have to build it from source. In the near future this may not be necessary anymore because astroquery will eventually consolidate the development version into the stable version.

Build from source

Clone the repository:

git clone

Navigate to the source code and install it in your Python environment:

cd sunburn
python install
