First time posting here so I hope this is the appropriate place to request some support. I am looking to define Umbra and Penumbra events on various ephemerides. I am using the python wrapper for orekit and it’s been working great.
It’s been very helpful to find example usages for other analysis I’ve completed with orekit but I can’t find any for implementing the event detection capability for an existing ephemeris. It appears I need to define an Ephemeris object which involves a list of spacecraft states, which come from the Orbit class, which is generated from TimeStampedPVCoordinates. Then I can potentially apply an EclipseDetector via the addEventDetector with the withPenumbra() and withUmbra() sub-methods.
Can anyone with more experience using the event detection functions on an existing ephemeris provide any feedback on if this is the correct way to go? Or is there a more direct way for this? An example usage would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
