Fermi Queries (astroquery.fermi)

Getting started

The following example illustrates a Fermi LAT query, centered on M 31 for the energy range 1 to 100 GeV for the first day in 2013.

>>> from astroquery import fermi
>>> result = fermi.FermiLAT.query_object('M31', energyrange_MeV='1000, 100000',
...                                      obsdates='2013-01-01 00:00:00, 2013-01-02 00:00:00')
>>> print(result)
>>> from astropy.io import fits
>>> sc = fits.open('https://fermi.gsfc.nasa.gov/FTP/fermi/data/lat/queries/L1309041729388EB8D2B447_SC00.fits')
