Frequently Asked Questions
Got Questions? We’re Here to Help.
What does the Amazing Aurora app do?
The Amazing Aurora app provides the user with a vast amount of information regarding the solar wind impacting Earth. The solar wind interacting with Earth's magnetosphere is what causes the aurora to occur!
How often is the app updated?
The answer to this question is, it depends. The app is updated whenever bugs are uncovered by users, when major package updates are available, and if suggested features are added to the app. The app is updated, at a minimum, once per year to insure it is compliant with security features provided by Google and Apple.
There are several aurora apps out there. What makes Amazing Aurora the best?
A lot of time and effort has been put in developing the app to make it the best option for anyone from beginner to advanced users. The information is collected from national space weather agencies and, rather than regurgitate all of this information, Amazing Aurora refines it using a proprietary algorithm to give you indications of when conditions are just right in your area to see this phenomenon. It has been field tested and validated by first-time gazers and veteran light chases alike!
