Aurora Buddy

Aurora Buddy


The most feature complete northern lights app for Android!

UPDATING BUG IS NOW FIXED.

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.

You can also 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:

Alaska
North America
Europe
North Polar
South Polar

(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!

FINALLY found and fixed the bug that some people were reporting regarding the strength not updating. This is now completely fixed.

It used to update. It doesn't update now even though the bug is supposedly fixed. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. No luck. I used to love it. :(

I used this app for 2 years. No real changes made to it, nothing added to make it better, none of the input from people that have and use these apps has been used to make it better. Uninstalled. Found a much better app, more accurate and with needed info like timeframe, estimated viewing time/times as well as astrological phenomenon that's also viewable. If I have to pay to buy an app its going to have everything I want and need, sorry. 2 years is plenty of time to make this better

Data and app never get updates The data never gets updated. The Dev used to be good in fixing the constant bugs in the update system, but the app hasn't been updated since early 2012. This app used to be great, but is now totally unreliable - And I'd never stump up £6 for the full version! (The Pro version has now vanished, so I'm guessing that this nor the pro version are likely to ever be updated.)
