My Aurora Forecast Pro is the best app for seeing the Northern Lights. Built with a sleek dark design, it appeals to both tourists and serious aurora watchers by telling you what you want to know - whether that is exactly how likely you are to see the aurora borealis or details about the solar winds and high-resolution sun imagery. With this app, you'll be seeing the Northern Lights in no time.

- Find the current KP index and how likely you are to see the Northern Lights.
- View a list of the best locations to view from right now.
- Map showing how strong the aurora is around the world, based on the SWPC ovation auroral forecast.
- Free push notifications when auroral activity is expected to be high.
- Forecasts for the next hour, several hours and several weeks so you can plan your Northern Lights viewing long in advance (subject to weather conditions).
- Solar wind statistics and sun imagery.
- Tour information so if you're considering to go to locations such as Iceland, Sweden, Finland or even Alaska or Canada, you'll be able to find tours that we can recommend to you.
- Support for iPhone X and iPad Pro (including split view).
- Apple Watch and tvOS support so you can check the aurora on all of your devices!

If you want the latest updates on geomagnetic activity and enjoy viewing the aurora borealis, this app is right for you. It is similar to other apps such as Aurora Forecast., AuroraWatch UK and Aurorasaurus.

As a shortwave/mediumwave DXer, I find the K index a great indicator of when solar conditions are likely to provide interesting opportunities to hear stations I don’t often hear. The K index changes rapidly, providing a real-time indication of conditions. So I’m always looking for ways to keep on top of the changes. This app is the best I’ve found, and offers a beautiful rendition of the information. I also appreciate that it provides an Apple Watch app, allowing me to check the K index in a Glimpse. And Jake is very responsive to suggestions. I look forward to seeing what improvements he comes up with.

Great App


This is an awesome App to keep track of the aurora. I am planning a trip Iceland this year 2017 and using this app to track when the lights are visible.

Just what I was looking for


It's what I needed for my Astro photography. I love that it works with my Apple Watch.
