I received an alert, but I don't see auroras anywhere?
When an alert is issued, you can check the strength of the northern lights by opening the notification. If the strength is weak, northern lights may sometimes be challenging to see if there is light pollution or a light cloud cover. However, a weak alert is usually followed by a medium alert.
I can see many posts in Instagram/Facebook of northern lights but I did not receive an alert?
Local companies drive up to 100 km away from the clouds to see the northern lights. Most of the social media posts are from these aurora tours.
Our local cameras can detect the northern lights in a radius of 30-80km.
