Aurora Alerts is an app designed to monitor real-time auroral activity and push alert to let you know if there may be aurora borealis (northern lights) visible tonight. Whenever you are home or away, Aurora Alerts will notify you if the possibility of seeing the northern lights exists. Main features: - short-term aurora forecast for next hour with weather conditions and moon Illumination - long-term aurora forecast for the next 3 days with weather conditions - long-term northern lights forecast for the next 27 days - show probability to see Northern Lights based on your or custom location - current auroral activity (based on observed and predicted Kp Indices from U.S. Air Force Weather Agency) - weather forecast to check visibility conditions before planning to see northern lights - solar wind data directly from the NASA satellite (wind speed, Bz, Bt and density) - unlike many other apps, it uses the local time instead of UTC Alerts: - when northern lights may be visible at current or custom location at the horizon or overhead - Kp index reaches chosen value - solar wind data reach chosen values - you can filter out alerts based on time of the day Boost your chances of viewing the northern lights!

    This app is great for keeping track of the Kp index which I use in conjunction with the “The Disasters Prediction App” for earthquake and dangerous solar energy. Thanks for keeping us posted with the latest updates

    This is a great app, however its developers apparently do not update. It crashed at opening. They’ve made it great again with update. I’m changing to four stars.

    Ever since they fix the bug, it crashes, even when you re-download it and open it, it crashes!

    I have used this app for a couple of years. The latest update appears to be broken. Crashes on iPhone 7 and iPad. Both with most current OS.
  • Overrated!!!!!

    I used this app without issue, then I upgraded (paid) for the extended forecast option, now when I try to look at the extended forecast the app crashes! I cannot even see the extended/longrange forecast now. This is so frustrating!!!!! I really like the GUI, but a non working app upgrade is USELESS! Save your money!!!!!
  • Love this App!!!!!!

    Although I do not live in an area that will see an Aurura, The information this app provides helps me determine when it is safe to go outside. I have been a fan of Nasa for decades and all the information I used to have to go to 6 different places to get is all in one place and I get customized alerts.
  • Keeps crashing

    No explanation needed
  • Doesn’t alert

    By J71s
    Paid to get push notifications when the lights are out and... nothing. Not a one. Last night was an amazing show in Anchorage and not a peep from the app.

    Hi- I just upgraded to an iPhone 8, with the latest iOS, today. When I tried to open this app to use it, it immediately crashes. I’m disappointed, because I used to use it with my iPhone SE and the previous iOS, with no problems. It has been an extremely useful app, and up until now, I’d have given it 5 stars. Any chance the bugs will be fixed soon? Or that you have a solution? Thank you!
