Always says 0, *fixed*

New update works and shows the data I was looking for in the app. Showed a good percent of chance last night and sure enough we had a great show! Thanks for the update.

We have missed plenty of showings using this app. The app has never been over 0 chance since using it for several years yet you go outside and the sky is filled with the Northern lights. Only thing good about the app is an easy way to see some atmospheric metrics and such. Don’t count on it for predictions!

Sorry to hear about this, you are not the only one that encountered this bug. Hopefully the current version works better for you.

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.

good idea, not very accurate, in my experience, others we have better luck

I live in Minnesota and roughly the middle of the state. We see the lights from time to time during strong, solar events. They can push down to the midpoint of Minnesota. I have seen them three times since getting this app, but not because the app helped. when I seen the lights, I’ve opened the app and it says my chances of seeing the lights or 0%, this app is last updated four years ago, maybe a new update and tweaking are in order? Good idea, poor function.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback! Either it was a bug in the old app or it is because of the data shows the chance for overhead auroral activity, not in the horizon. Will try to resolve this in the coming weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience
