Hi windy. First off what a great app. What is the possibility of including a layer to forcast the possibility of seeing the aurora. Having a tool like that would allow us that are not normally in a high enough region to see them have the potential if the aurora become strong enough to get into lower longitudes. Thanks
To see the aurora, first of all, you need clear skies (no clouds).
So, you must start from here:
After then, you must know if the solar activity (solar wind)
is adequate for aurora.
For short term (1 hr) aurora forecast, see:
observers in Canada, can not see aurora, because of clouds.
observers in Alaska have a 30 to 50% probability
(check the scale at second image).
That's exactly it. And also take into account location altitude and cloud cover
