This used to be one of my favourite apps, but it stopped updating many of the views over the past 8 or 9 months. I can no longer use this to decide when it's worthwhile setting up a solar scope which it used to be fantastic for. Such a shame, it should really be a 5* review :-\
Lots of pretty pictures not much info. I was looking for an app that could keep me up to date with solar weather that effects earth. Especially electrical effects as I am an engineer. While this app likely provides this info. I can't understand any of it. A few simple graphs is what I need. Showing X-ray, flare, magnetic etc etc readings over various time frames from hours to months. With optional push notification for anything over a value of my choice.
Does what it says Love the way N.A.S.A makes this info so readily available. Awesome for those that are interested in what the sun really does behind it's blinding glare. Share it with your kids and students. I do wish it would show time lapse. Our sun is dynamic and a lapse would make it more interesting to all who view it.
Used to be the best app for seeing what the sun looks like in H-alpha and I've used the info for observing when to go out and image spots and prominences. Stopped working in the fall 2016 and been dead ever since. Please fix the app, it can't take this long. As said, used to be the best, now the worst.
This is a cool app if you want to know about visible solar features - sun spots and coronal activities. I wanted to see the extent and strength of auroral activity. It does not give this. Ah well, NASA website again.
Needs more text information Nice app but I'd like to see some explanatory text available for each Cygnet to help understand exactly what we are seeing and why it is important. Perhaps in the form of hyperlinks from the bits of different text which appears in the Cygnet.
