“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. Its a totally unique and immersive experience."

Unbelievable aroras

I have recently downloaded the app and am astonished with the vast variety of aroras and spectacular colours that these produce, these are some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen and has made me want to go to see these in person. I would highly recommend this app to all age ranges!

This is great!

I’m so glad I found this app, it’s everything I’ve wanted in an app of this type for a long time....the ability to watch the aurora in real time. I’m not lucky enough to live in an area where the aurora is visible, so this is the next best thing. Thank you developers!
