The Northern Lights! are unpredictable so we do not try to predict or forecast, instead we use our 13 specially made Aurora cameras in Lapland, Norway, Iceland, USA, and Alaska that are linked to a detection system a bit like face recognition, we send you real-time alerts when the majestic aurora is detected. You can either watch live in HD ad free or get directions to the show.
Set your alert level, Visible to the eye, Aurora moving slowly, or Sky's Alive.
Unlike all other alert apps in existence, which rely on NOAA ‘space weather’ forecasts that requires experience to use, and is often old data, 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 in Iceland, Norway, Alaska, USA, Sweden
Our 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, Norway, USA, Sweden, Alaska with directions to our dark sky areas.
- Localized weather forecast at each location.
- Current Live KP rating
- Customisable alert level
Updated camera feeds (1-13)
Ratings and Reviews
Great app but...
First, I do enjoy this app. Having the notification when the sky comes alive is a great feature. But I find that, at least for Iceland, the cameras are often out of focus or have a weird light too close to them. The videos themselves are very hard to click on when viewing a camera. The close button is difficult to press because it’s overlaid with the video options. The left and right buttons are difficult to hit because of the video options. I have yet to find a way to purchase the app without having to watch the extremely annoying ads.
Good if you are in their area
This does a pretty good job of letting you know if the aurora are out, but only in a small area. 20-30km away and it could be totally different. It would also be good know for how long they have been seen consistently. If it was just a 5 min break in cloud cover, it might not be worth heading to their area to catch a glimpse. Could also use some coverage in the eastern part of Iceland.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for downloading, the Aurora can be seen from as far as 250k but as far as weather breaks, we are working on adding a lot more cameras. Thanks for the feedback
Great App!!! Connects you to Iceland!
I visited Iceland back in November and this app was recommended by our tour guide so we could be on the lookout for the Northern lights. And, we got to see them in person the last night we were there. They were amazing.
This app is awesome!! Ever since seeing them in person, I’ve kept this app on my phone, and I get to see the Northern Lights when they happen. They are the coolest thing!
I’m glad the makers of the app did this, and provides a window into their world! Thank you!
