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.! 👍

The data headings on the graph page beneath the oval image are way too tiny to read so the graphs and data provided are useless. No ability to enlarge this screen. I'm giving 3 stars for that feature alone. I just downloaded the app so I'm not able to review on the accuracy and ability to recieve notifications at this time.

Bought the full version of this app last week. Only thing you get extra is the alert! Times are not saved so as soon as you start doing something else, your setting goes back to standard (19-23)! Weather+moon data are n/a?! Visibility not taken into account. So getting useless alerts! Pay extra for 27 day forecast. This is a rip off considering you can get all info for free at NOAA or on free apps! The layout is nice and has potential. Do not recommend!
