    obstime : `~astropy.time.Time`
        The time at which the observation is taken.  Used for determining the
        position of the Earth.
    obsgeoloc : `~astropy.coordinates.CartesianRepresentation`, `~astropy.units.Quantity`
        The position of the observer relative to the center-of-mass of the
        Earth, oriented the same as BCRS/ICRS. Either [0, 0, 0],
        `~astropy.coordinates.CartesianRepresentation`, or proper input for one,
        i.e., a `~astropy.units.Quantity` with shape (3, ...) and length units.
        Defaults to [0, 0, 0], meaning "true" GCRS.
    obsgeovel : `~astropy.coordinates.CartesianRepresentation`, `~astropy.units.Quantity`
        The velocity of the observer relative to the center-of-mass of the
        Earth, oriented the same as BCRS/ICRS. Either [0, 0, 0],
