AuroraWatch UK

The aurora borealis (or northern lights) is a spectacular natural phenomenon which can occasionally be seen in the night sky over Britain. Once seen, it is never forgotten. AuroraWatch UK allows you to monitor geomagnetic activity in real time, and will let you know when aurora MAY be visible from the UK.

Get alerts about increases in geomagnetic activity - triggered when the AuroraWatch status level changes; this indicates the relative likelihood of viewing an aurora in the UK.
See the current alert status.
Read last 24 hours recent history.
30 minute forecast model from SWPC.

Please email aurora@smallbouldering.com with any issues.

PLEASE NOTE:
The app does not alert historically. If your phone is off or unable to connect to the internet when the status goes up but the level goes back down before the next data update you will receive no alert.

The AuroraWatch UK (Android) app is developed and maintained by Smallbouldering Projects, it is not an 'Official' app.
AuroraWatch UK alerts data is provided by Lancaster University, UK using data from the SAMNET and/or AuroraWatchNet magnetometer networks: Read more about this here:

What's New

Use Google Firebase to push activity changes to the app - making it more likely that AuroraWatch can alert when your phone is idle (Doze mode).
Refresh view on re-opening the app now that Google doesn't allow it to happen in the background.
