You can use this library to easily retrieve information about transient astronomical events, if that information was sent via the public VOEvent network.

voeventdb.remote is available via PyPi, which means that if you are using a virtualenv then you should be able to simply type:

pip install voeventdb.remote

at the command line. Alternatively, you can install into your user-area using:
