We are proud to announce that KHO is part in the satellite proposal of NTNU AMOS that just got funded by the Norwegian Research Council. Our knowledge of hyperspectral imaging will fly into space!
In the spotlight!
KHO have hosted two large TV productions in December. NRK is producing a documentary about the Nordic winter and NHK (Nippon Hoso Kyokai) - Japan Broadcasting Corporation is planning for the first time to broadcast the dayside aurora in 360 view.
Aurora Forecast 3D released
The new auroral forecast is now finally released. It is a cross-platform app for both Apple and Windows computers. It is published on Google Play for Android and App Store for iOS phones. It forecasts the aurora oval up to +0, +1, and +4 hours ahead in time at any location on the planet using a 3D graphical layout.
360 image of the aurora
I finally got some time to play with the Ricoh Theta S camera. My first target is the substorm aurora above Svalbard on 3rd of Mars 2017. The exposure time is 3.5 second at ISO 1600. This is promising indeed!
