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.

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!
