FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) is a data format most used in
astronomy. PyFITS is a Python module for reading, writing, and manipulating
FITS files. The module uses Python's object-oriented features to provide quick,
easy, and efficient access to FITS files. The use of Python's array syntax
enables immediate access to any FITS extension, header cards, or data items.
This is a dummy transitional package for astropy-utils and can be
safely removed after the installation is complete.
