ESASky is a web-based application developed by the ESAC Science Data Centre that allows both scientists and the general public to explore a wide variety of astronomical data sets across the whole electromagnetic spectrum in a simple and intuitive way. In this talk we will present pyESASky, an extension library for JupyterLab that has been developed by the ESASky team. This library can be easily installed with pip and gives the user full control of the application from a Jupyter notebook, showing the available data from ground-based and space observatories, selecting background observations, overlaying catalogues of astronomical objects and projecting the footprints of astronomical instrumentation on the sky, for example for James Webb Space Telescope.
