Once upon a time, two Aurora enthusiasts who live in Reykjavík got an idea to create a Northern Lights forecast application.
The idea came from their own difficulties and experiences with finding information about the Northern Lights forecast. They have to browse multiple sources such as weather forecast, aurora forecast, road conditions and more to know the accurate prediction. Therefore they created an app with a lovely name, hello aurora, intending to help aurora hunters spot the aurora most easily and as safely as possible.
Hello aurora was launched in October 2019 and has gained more than 7000 active users in two months. The application and website are continuously updated and we want to become the most trustworthy and reliable Northern Lights forecast application available for everyone.
