What is Aurora Alert?

Aurora Alert is the website which delivers aurora forecast and the current sky images of areas in the auroral belt. This website is operated by the Space Environment Laboratory, Applied Electromagnetic Research Institute in the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology. Aurora images are taken by live cameras installed in Alaska and Syowa Station. The aurora forecast has been calculated automatically based on Aurora Electrojet (AE) index and the realtime data of solar wind by the DSCOVR spacecraft. If you have any questions about this website, please contact us by following link.

Acknowledgments

Realtime values of AL index and solar wind data by DSCOVR are used for the aurora forecast calculation. We would like to thank the following institutions for their cooperation and efforts operating these stations and providing data.
