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.

As soon as I opened the app a message appeared from the creator of this app saying to download pro because this version isn't updated and has no location based features Apparently these storms occur without much warning. The kp number can change in a matter of minutes, so this app is pretty useless if you're actually trying to get out and see the northern lights. Thanks but no thanks. Uninstalling now.
