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!

Best guide for the Aurora

This is the #1 app for predicting and monitoring the Aurora. On our recent trip we used this as our go-to indicator of activity. Highly recommend.

Easy and simple

This is a great app, it does a the job of simply telling when you're going to be able to see the aurora. The data is arranged clearly and the graphic showing visibility on the earth is interesting.

Was good until now

This was a nice app but it stopped displaying data around May 10 and I am wondering what's going on...
Still broken after May 23rd update.

Developer Response ,

We are very sorry about the broken image, but we are unaware of any other issue with not displaying data correctly, and would highly appreciate if you could tell us in detail what is not working in the app, and hopefully we will be able to fix that ASAP. Looking forward to hear from you!
