Magnetometer Graphs

Project Description

Dunedin Aurora aims to answer the question: "When can I see an aurora?"

This website is a work in progress and is likely to change. For example, we hope to implement a simple dashboard system to replace the magnetometer charts, to make it easy for people.

You can find more info about this project over here.

Can I see an Aurora?

To answer that question, we are currently using devices called magnetometers. A magnetometer shows tiny changes in the Earth's magnetic field, which sometimes occur when an aurora is happening.
