About this app

Aurora Alerts is an app designed to monitor real-time auroral activity and push alert to let you know if there may be aurora borealis (northern lights) visible tonight. Whenever you are home or away, Aurora Alerts will notify you if the possibility of seeing the northern lights exists.

Main features:
- short-term aurora forecast for next hour with weather conditions and moon Illumination
- long-term aurora forecast for the next 3 days with weather conditions
- long-term northern lights forecast for the next 27 days
- show probability to see Northern Lights based on your or custom location
- current auroral activity (based on observed and predicted Kp Indices from U.S. Air Force Weather Agency)
- weather forecast to check visibility conditions before planning to see northern lights
- solar wind data directly from the NASA satellite (wind speed, Bz, Bt and density)
- unlike many other apps, it uses the local time instead of UTC

- when northern lights may be visible at current or custom location at the horizon or overhead
- Kp index reaches chosen value
- solar wind data reach chosen values
- you can filter out alerts based on time of the day

Boost your chances of viewing the northern lights!

I really like this app and how easy it is to read and it's very informative. HOWEVER, the reason for only a 3 star rating is because of the pricing for alerts; $1.99 each (there's 3), but you can get ALL the alerts for a "big discount" of $5.99 - $.02 MORE than buying them individually; WHERE'S THE BIG DISCOUNT!? Either this was a mistake or the developer is trying to scam people; hopefully it's the former. Other than that, a beautiful app.! 👍

Love the app, used it all summer. I like how the data is presented in a clear way. BUT the weather info on thevShortterm Forecast page is always unavailable. AND a friend gets percentage possibility of seeing the aurora on the Longterm Forecast for each day, I don't. I'm on Android, friend is iOS. Why is my weather broken, NOT HAPPY!

Had free version for a while, purchased in-app $5.99 unlock so alerts could be activated but this feature is as useless as pedotus! Notification settings don't make a lick of difference: Set alert hours 1900-0300, just got several notifications at 1330-1430, plus nearly a dozen more shortly before 0600. Refund requested! Also, graphs and numbers do not align with NOAA predictions nor any of the other aurora apps, this app *always* shows higher numbers and probabilities than all others.
