Our story

Hello, we are glad you want to know a little about us. Our names are Jeremy and Pidsinee, we are two aurora enthusiasts who decided to create an app based on our own obstacle we had and hope hello aurora will help others who share the same passion as us.

The idea came from our own difficulties and experiences with finding information about the Northern Lights forecast. We had to browse multiple sources such as weather forecast, aurora forecast, road conditions, and more to know to get the information we needed. Therefore we 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 the first 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.
