Aurora Forecast & Alerts App

Tracking aurora borealis has never been easier. Monitor the forecast and set up notification alerts through one convenient app. Available for iPhone and iPad.

What is an aurora?

Also referred to as aurora borealis, northern lights, and southern lights, auroras are caused by the sun. Sometimes, solar storms can go through Earth’s magnetic field lines at the north and south poles. As a result, this interaction with Earth’s atmosphere creates the beautiful lights we witness when it’s dark out.
