When first launching Aurora Alert, it will find your location from GPS or cell networks, and then configure your settings based on the results. Users can then adjust any settings, if they wish. Aurora Alert will then update in the background, as often as you wish, and will alert you to possible aurora sightings when the conditions are favorable. You’ll never miss a chance to see the northern lights again!
Aurora Alert is configured to run as efficiently as possible. Automatic updates will download only 5KB of compressed data per update, which spares users of downloading needless data against their limits. It also runs only when it needs to, and no more, which helps save battery life and frees up for RAM for other apps. Note that since Aurora Alert needs to update in the background, certain task killer apps can prevent it from updating. So if you run any task killers, Aurora Alert will need to be on the ignore list in order to keep updating.

Install this package, then restart AuroraNotifier. There should then be a "+" after the app name and your location should be marked with a red dot on the globe.
Space weather is the dynamical way in which the Sun affects the near-Earth space environment and our technological systems. Disturbances are cause by solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and these impact high frequency (HF) radio communications, GPS navigation accuracy, power line transmissions, cell phones, and satellite orbits. Space weather even creates the aurora. For example, say that a flare occurs and you want to know its effects at Earth right now. The App uniquely extracts data from real-time, operational systems linking the four major space environment domains (Sun, solar wind, magnetosphere, thermosphere/ionosphere). With a tap of the finger you see a detailed chain of energy events including SDO Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) solar images, the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) solar wind calculations, and even the real-time ionospheric TEC, i.e., the entire energy transfer from the Sun to the Earth. Solar index forecasts are also provided. You will definitely want this application to see all the action in real-time when violent flares and powerful CMEs affect us during solar maximum (2012-2014).
This application has been developed as a collaborative educational project between the Utah Sate University's Space Weather USTAR initiative (www.innovationutah.com) and Space Environment Technologies, LLC (www.spacewx.com). The App serves as a platform upon which 16 diverse organizations collaborate to integrate 112 real-time products using a distributed, operational network.
Select from 112 near real-time space weather images and data figures of the Sun, the Solar Wind, the Earth's Magnetosphere, and the Earth's ionosphere/thermosphere!
View the near real-time solar images, X-rays, and solar wind conditions as observed for the GOES, SOHO, STEREO, ACE, and SDO satellites.
View maps of the near real-time ionospheres's global and regional TEC and HF radio propagation, which are updated every 15 minutes.
View the forecasted F10.7 and X-ray flare probabilities up to 6 months in the future.
View the geomagnetic NOAA ap index, and Dst Indices from Kyoto, SEC, CCMC, and the USGS.
View the geosynchronous orbit particle fluxes as measured by the GOES satellites, and see the historical and predicted spacecraft charging at geosynchronous orbits.
View the convenient solar wind dials from Rice University for a quick snapshot of solar wind conditions.
View the current and predicted solar wind from the NASA Coordinated Community Modeling Center (CCMC).
View the current Aurora Ovals to see where the aurorae may be visible.

When you install the widget onto your phone's home screen, a configuration dialog allows you to select what happens when you tap the widget. To change this preference, remove the widget from the home screen and then add it back to the home screen.
Widget icons and labels indicate the following:
- The power of the strongest solar flare in the past 24 hours
- Current sunspot number
- Current 10.7 cm solar flux, in sfu (solar flux units)
- Current 3-hour average planetary Kp index (probability of aurora increases with Kp index)
- Btotal and Bz interplanetary magnetic field in nano-teslas (probability of aurora increases with south-facing Bz)
These values are updated every thirty minutes.
Please email me if you encounter problems, or with suggestions to improve the widget - thanks!

Be ready for space weather storms with Solaris Alpha, featuring realtime 3D views of Sun and Earth. Receive automatic solar flare, geomagnetic storm, and aurora alerts on your phone!
Solaris Alpha's 3D Sun view displays the latest xray flares and sunspots on our home star, at four extreme ultraviolet wavelengths. Effortlessly move around the Sun and zoom into interesting regions with a touch of your finger!
But there's more - this app also features a realtime 3D view of Earth's aurora, cloud-cover, and sunlight. Watch northern and southern lights, storms, and sunshine move across our planet - all in the palm of your hand!
The application uses data from NASA STEREO, SDO and NOAA polar orbiter spacecraft - downloaded from outer space to your phone. Solaris Alpha alerts you with a ringtone when new solar flares are detected, geomagnetic storm level increases, interplanetary magnetic field turns south, or when the aurora may be visible from your phone's location. If you are interested in solar astronomy and space weather, you need this app!
Please email me with suggested new features - many thanks to all of those who have already helped me improve Solaris Alpha!
The app's storm/aurora/flare detector automatically starts when your phone boots, and you will receive alerts whether or not SolarisAlpha is running (uncheck "Start detector at boot" from Solaris' "Settings" menu to disable auto-start on boot). PLEASE NOTE: Android does NOT support start-on-boot of apps stored on the SD card, so you must install SolarisAlpha on your phone to enable this feature.
Download the free Solaris Widget, which displays key data from www.spaceweather.com. Touching the widget automatically opens Solaris Alpha.
IF YOU EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS - please email me at email@example.com with a problem description rather than leaving a brief complaint in the market. Brief market comments usually do not provide enough detail to fix bugs, and I have no way of contacting you for more information unless I have your email address! Thanks!

This app gives you updates and alerts for the short-term Aurora Borealis (and Aurora Australis) forecast from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute. Great for knowing when to get outside to see the northern lights.
Aurora Buddy Pro can look at the current weather so it will only alert you when the viewing conditions are best - no more being alerted when the sky is too cloudy to see anything! Additionally, Aurora Buddy Pro can use your current location to set the alert level - no more guessing at what level you need in order to see the Aurora!
You can view the most recent satellite data for both the North and South poles, as well as the most recent short term predictions on a map for 5 areas (Do a long press on the image to select.)
Ideas and requests for features which you would like to see in the app should be either emailed to me, or left in the comments. Thanks!
IMPORTANT: If you use any task-killing software, make sure Aurora Buddy Pro is in the ignore list. Also, always exit the app with the "home" button rather than the "back" button!
