Aurora Buddy Pro

Aurora Buddy Pro


The most feature complete northern lights app for Android now has even more features!

- 15 minute updates
- Filter by time (only receive alerts between 8pm and 4am)
- Auto-configure alert levels for your current location
- Europe, North America, Asia, and South satellite images of Aurora activity
- Whole world satellite data of energetic Aurora particles
- Latest solar X-ray image
- Three day planetary KP graph
- Solar wind speed readings
- Space weather alerts from the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center
- Ad free!


This app gives you updates and alerts for the short-term Aurora Borealis (and Aurora Australis) forecast from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute. Great for knowing when to get outside to see the northern lights.

Aurora Buddy Pro can look at the current weather so it will only alert you when the viewing conditions are best - no more being alerted when the sky is too cloudy to see anything! Additionally, Aurora Buddy Pro can use your current location to set the alert level - no more guessing at what level you need in order to see the Aurora!

You can view the most recent satellite data for both the North and South poles, as well as the most recent short term predictions on a map for 5 areas (Do a long press on the image to select.)

Ideas and requests for features which you would like to see in the app should be either emailed to me, or left in the comments. Thanks!

IMPORTANT: If you use any task-killing software, make sure Aurora Buddy Pro is in the ignore list. Also, always exit the app with the "home" button rather than the "back" button!

Don't waste your money Expensive app that does not work. I tried adjusting the Kp settings, removing the weather option (which also doesn't work), but it still doesn't function. I thought buying the app would make the alerts feature work, but it's a no-go. And it hasn't been updated since who knows when. I wasted my money, don't waste yours.

A waste of money I wouldn't recommend this app. Location and weather doesn't work. People should be refunded for this app. It's not good enough. Disgusted!!

Expensive and doesn't seem to work. Not happy with the functionality of this ap. Needs some serious work. Has good potential, though.
