Bug Description

I try this code

--- cut --
from astral import Astral

a = Astral()
c = a['Buenos Aires']

print c # get empty timezone

Buenos Aires/Argentina, tz=, lat=-36.50, lon=-60.00

s = c.sun()

print s # get error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "example-buenos-aires.py", line 16, in <module>
    s = c.sun()
  File "astral.py", line 730, in sun
    sun[key] = dt.astimezone(self.tz)
  File "astral.py", line 670, in fget
    raise AstralError('Unknown timezone \'%s\'' % self.timezone)
astral.AstralError: Unknown timezone ''
--- cut --


There is incorrect timezone for Buenos Aires in _LOCATION_INFO - "Argentina/Buenos_Aires"
It should be "America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires"

I found correct timezone using pytz

--- cut ---
import pytz

--- cut ---

Revision history for this message
Simon Kennedy (sffjunkie) wrote :

pytz includes 2 names for Buenos Aires' time zone America/Buenos_Aires or America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires. America/Buenos_Aires used as code currently assumes that a timezone only has 1 '/' in it.
