Extremely accurate. Not sure about the cloud cover in the map. It's unrealistic and looks horrible. The cloud percentage is also inaccurate. I just want to see the probabilities like we used to have. I know I can toggle to it to off but wish we could save our settings so the clouds do not load at all. I've used this app for years and recommend often. @toddgravenphotography on IG and FB. Thx for your help!!!

We had great success using this app while cruising around Iceland in August. As pointed out by some other reviewer, I first unchecked the default option to not send notifications in summer and was able to see the northern lights. Pictures with a "nighttime" mode help get some really awesome pictures.

I'm so happy with this app! It's full of intersting worldwide forecasts and live maps. You can opt in for notifications when the aurora conditions are good for that night, or within the hour, which is so cool. I do wish the app gave more local prediction data (like historical trends for the area I'm in). It would be nice to see what seasons I should plan to have outings in for my area.

What's new

In the last update to the app, we added the ability to report when the aurora is visible in your location using the new 'eye' button in the top right corner. In this update, the main screen of the app has been polished and now includes the ability to view live aurora webcams from around the world! You can use this to see how strong the aurora is right now in many different locations.
