- 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

I can’t say this app is not accurate because I don’t know the science of the KP index or any of that stuff so it very well may be doing what it should but It has never alerted me to be able to actually see any auroras. Whenever I have seen auroras out in full view the app stays silent

Won’t alert

Once again, like last year, app won’t alert like it’s supposed to. I’ve missed multiple amazing shows that were right over head because there was no alert. Disappointing waste

Appreciated the alerts!

Having the Aurora Alert helped me sleep until the Alert sounded. I did not have to constantly watch the Alaska sky, wondering if an aurora sighting was possible. Because of the alert, we were able to watch a wonderful 2+ hour aurora in Southern Alaska In September.
