Aurora Now provides real-time predictions regarding the chances for auroral activity at your specific location right now as well as a forecast for the coming 30 minutes.

One of the most popular services we provide is the local aurora alert service. You can get instantly notified when there is a high chance for auroral activity at your location without having to check the app all the time. You can also get alert services for the solar wind data, Kp index, and hemispheric power. These extra services can be purchased within the app.

The app also provides predicted and observed Kp index, solar wind data directly from DSCOVR, such as solar wind speed and magnetic field (Bz and Bt), and graphs with recent data to help you predict auroral activity as well as the hemispheric power for the last 6 hours.

The app focuses much on the activity right now, but we also added a 3 day Kp forecast which can give you a hint which days you could expect higher activity. Enjoy!

Seems nice, but

I wish you could set up notifications for other areas other than your current location and also the ability to get notifications based on the forecast. i.e get notified when the space weather will be dramatic at my cabin this weekend.

Needs a Tutorial

It took a lot of effort to find out what “Bt” was, by searching websites. Still not sure about it as an alert value because what I found was: it’s the B-angle and that’s optimum in March and September. That can’t be it! We don’t need an alert that it’s March or September!!! Please advise. Thanks.

Good app

This app performs well, and gives me the information I need to be on the alert for the possibly seeing an aurora in my area. I would recommend this app to a friend.
