Never miss the Northern Lights! Live Aurora Network’s HD cameras send you real-time alerts when the majestic aurora is detected.
Unlike all other alert apps in existence, which rely on NOAA ‘space weather’ forecasts that require experience to use, Live Aurora Network sends out real time alerts based on what is actually seen in the sky, we send alerts based on the visual detection of aurora from our Network of Cameras. currently Iceland/Norway with Canada and Alaska coming soon!
The only truly real-time video alert app available globally - the unique algorithm not only detects the aurora borealis, but visually grades it based on the strength of the aurora. Users can choose the level they wish to be notified at so that they need only hit the road for displays they deem suitable.
All other top selling Aurora notification apps currently on the market are based on the global Kp index which runs from 0-9 and is based on magnetometers around the world. This is problematic for local aurora alerts, and not the most effective parameter for knowing when local auroral activity is highest.
Live Aurora Network pushes out alerts in real time, thanks to software designed to detect the colours of the Aurora, while grading the density and percentage of the sky that is showing the lights. This is especially helpful to find breaks in the clouds!
Also, in this app:
- HD live stream from every location
- Zoomable map of Iceland and Norway with directions to our dark sky areas.
- Localized weather forecast at each location.
- Current Live KP rating
- Customisable alert level
Our unique Icelandic/ Norwegian camera locations:
- Overlooking Eyjafjallajökull, the volcano that caused chaos with air traffic in 2010.
- Overlooking Kirkjafell Mountain in West Iceland
- Underneath a beautiful mountain range in South West Iceland.
- Overlooking Iceland's biggest freshwater lake.
- The magical Lofoten Islands Norway
New cameras added soon!
Our app is complementary to Aurora citizen science initiatives like Aurorasaurus, a project created by NASA space physicist Dr Liz MacDonald, that makes scientific use of crowdsourced aurora data. Such collaborations enhance research return from the Live Aurora Network observations. Our science advisors include Dr Melanie Windridge, the bestselling author of Aurora: In Search of the Northern Lights, and Dr Tamitha Skov, these experts and others contributed to the development of the app.
“This is a great app for watching the aurora when you can’t be there yourself!”
- Mélanie Windridge (Physicist and writer of Aurora: In Search of the Northern Lights)
"This app is instant gratification for aurora lovers and forecasters alike. You can't get a better aurora alert than a live view. The cameras are such high quality too, you feel teleported straight to the action. You can even see the stars twinkling as the aurora dances overhead. It’s a totally unique and immersive experience."
- Tamitha Skov (The Space Weather Woman)

Very good app
I think this is an excellent idea and have enjoyed looking at the live footage but I do think there needs to be more cameras and also you pay a monthly subscription so do you continue to pay during the summer months when there is no aurora? This app should automatically stop you from paying during the summer months.

Hi, during the summer months you can cancel, and just restart when the season kicks off, we do have the Alaska cam and more being added soon, so the off season will be about 2 months. Hope this helps, thanks for downloading
I got this app so I could let my folks know when the lights were out on their trip to Iceland. It notified me and I was able to inform them straight away. They found the co ordinates so useful to get to the best spot for viewing. They managed to get there within 20 minutes and watch a lovely show of lights for around 1 hour. They’d have missed them if I didn’t have this app. Thanks!

Thanks for downloading, glad your folks got to see a show
Best app ever
Now this is an app worth having you actually get to see such a beautiful thing I would recommend to anyone who is looking to go see the lights an anyone who is not planning on going an just wants to check out the lights from there phone I would give more than 5 stars if I could
