This service gathers all available data from the ACE spacecraft, the GOES’s Satellites, as well as local NOAA estimates and presents it to users to assist them by giving them a short Aurora forecast. Normally the next hour.
The service also allows you to report sightings of an aurora, which will be visible in real-time to other users of the service.
As well as real-time forecasting you can also view archived dates, include archived reports of aurora’s
I have created a brief 18 minute video that explains the basics and how to get the most out of it, it can be viewed below. It does not evolve a lot of science or go into complex explanations as to why certain events are likely to cause Aurora’s. But it does explain the basic indicators to look for.
