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

Alerts:
- 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!

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.

Your app is not currently displaying any information and all data fields show as "N/A". I have tried this on wifi and data, restarted my device, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and tried it on wifi and data again. Please look into this as I have really liked using your app in the past and would rather not look for a replacement. Also, your email inbox is full.

I have used this app for years and love it, paid for full version but now app does not load any data, tried wifi, mobile data, uninstall and re installed 10 + times, app just sits there trying to load. I use Android version and all other apps on phone work correctly. Please fix this as it is annoying and frustrating. At this present moment I will not rate this app. No joy at all. Please fix asap, I know I am not the only person having this trouble.
