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
