Arcticans Aurora Forecast App
This Arcticans Aurora Forecast App is initiated, designed, and developed by Roderik Peeters, Joost Baudoin, Ruben Weytjens and Wietse Dijkstra.
The dream of this team of 4 Northern Lights enthusiasts is to create the perfect tool which guides you as a traveler as best as possible in your search for the Northern Lights.
We combine rocket science with our 2 decades of experience in hunting the Northern Lights in the arctic, which results in an aurora forecast app that creates the perfect interpretation of science. While on the field we will keep improving our app, with our main goal in mind that this app should be your best buddy when hunting the Northern Lights.
Use our Arcticans Aurora Forecast App as your personal Northern Lights guide. Select your relevant location and if there is a good chance you will receive a “push” message. But we do invite you to actively use the app during your trip.
Since only the Northern Lights chaser who continuously monitors the parameters will maximize his or her chances of seeing the Northern Lights.
Forecasting the Northern Lights is a hard thing to do, just like forecasting the weather. The Northern Lights prediction will not always be correct, but that’s life and in the long term the app will actually help you with the correct mindset.
Waiting for a push notification to come in that the chance is “high enough” to see the Northern Lights makes it also possible that you are too late to see the Northern Lights. Go out, also if it’s cloudy, sometimes a hole inside the clouds will give you the result that you are the only one out there seeing the Northern Lights.
