My Aurora Forecast 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 in the United States or the rest of the world. - 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 the latest iPhone and iPad (including split view). - Completely free of charge for all functionality, no in-app purchases. If you want the latest updates on geomagnetic activity and enjoy viewing the aurora borealis, this app is right for you. This version is ad-supported and is similar to other apps such as Aurora Forecast., AuroraWatch UK and Aurorasaurus.
Went to Iceland, tried to hit it at the right time for the northern lights. This app predicted pretty good when to see it, thank you!
Very accurate prediction. Outstanding App.
Edit: never mind! I found how to change location. I’m happy now haha. It was a bit hard to find quickly for some reason. It’s not where that function usually is on most apps. Previous review: This seems like a great app but I wish there was a way to change the location. I live in Indiana so I don’t expect to see any auroras here. Therefore most of the functions of the app are useless to me because they forecast auroras based on the phone’s location. Why not give the ability to see forecasts in another location, or multiple locations, like any weather app? I want to see when auroras will be visible in Michigan so that I can plan on when to go. I don’t want to have to drive to Michigan just to get a forecast there. Thanks.
I really like this app and plan to use it a lot during my travel to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
Used this app just for a few nights while on vacation in Alaska. Seemed to be fairly accurate in predicting if the lights would be present. Gave a good notification when the lights were showing.
I get alerts sometimes when the KP is lower than my setting. Then I never got an alert yesterday when the KP was above 6 and I missed a rare sighting. I downloaded this app for the alerts and they don’t seem to have that dialed in.
Love this app! I check it at least 3 times a day. Great up to date info. Why miss a chance to see this magical event? Not me!
It’s an excellent way for me to keep up with the Aurora. Going on a 16 day cruise in September and this app will help me decide which nights I might need to stay up and watch for the northern lights.
This app has just been disappointing for me. I read good reviews about it online and decided to download it. However, all it has done is given me false hope. I can’t tell you how many times I receive notifications that the KP index is “becoming high” but when I look at the map, it is clear that there is no chance of seeing the northern lights based on my location. I wouldn’t put all of your eggs in one basket with this app and would recommend exploring multiple resources.
Love the updates as well as time/percentage of an event happening.
