Developer's Description

** Please note that due to the popularity of this app and the limits on the free number of notifications imposed by Google you may not receive notifications, even if registered to do so.

The aurora borealis (or northern lights) is a spectacular natural phenomenon which can occasionally be seen in the night sky over Britain. Once seen, it is never forgotten. AuroraWatch UK allows you to monitor geomagnetic activity in real time, and will let you know when aurora may be visible from the UK. Push notifications alert you when an Aurora is likely.
