**Redesigned from Nokia DVLUP design consultation with Dave Crawford from Microsoft**
The original Space Weather app for Windows Phone! Only a glance or a few taps away from real-time space weather.

Space weather is the concept of changing environmental conditions in near-Earth space or the space from the Sun's atmosphere to the Earth's atmosphere.  Space weather affects our planet, our technology, and all living things in many different ways.  Solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and solar radiation are a few ways space weather can wreak havoc on the earth.  It can also create beautiful auroras can that be seen near the poles and sometimes much further.  
Space Weather app includes the following:

☀Real-time solar storm status
☀Live Tiles for WP 7/8
☀Reports and displays over 50 real-time measurements, reports, and readings or data
☀RSS Feeds
☀real-time alerts, reports, and predictions for space weather
☀real-time web cam images from around the world
☀real-time images of the sun* real-time location of satellites
☀UV Index maps* real-time images and mapping of near Earth objects
☀real-time images of the Earth as seen from space
☀real-time images of the aurora oval
☀real-time movies of the sun
☀beautiful artwork, animations, transitions, and fades
☀real-time solar movies
☀animations, transitions, fades
☀plus more
☀many features scheduled in future releases.

4.0.0.0
      (Pelican)
      - Nokia/Microsoft Design consultation refresh
      - Redesigned entire application
      - Kp on main pivot on a scale of 0-9
      - Aurora on ellipse shows the intensity
      - Aurora activity likelihood is shown  on main pivot
      - Flikr images of auroras displayed on first and second pivot, space weather images displayed on Forecast and Last 24h
      - Active Alert count displayed on Alerts pivot
      - Alert list isn't so busy or bold
      - Alert details page is toned down
      - Alert details shows the summary in the header
      - Explore pivot redesigned, charts are now included in this hub rather than its own panorama item
      - Live Tile redesigned.  It now shows the Kp index scale just like the first pivot or a condensed version depending on the size (we like the Wide Tile with a transparent background on 8.1)
      - Live Tile counter updates according to the current active alerts (Anything in the alerts section which has occurred in the last 24 hours).
      - Lockscreen removed.  This will make a return in future versions.  We didn't think it was up to par with the rest of the application and ran out of time.  This will make its way back soon.
      - Thanks again DVLUP, Nokia, and Microsoft!

    Great app, now would like to get toast notifications for alerts of solar flares and such....
  • by Jeremy 9/24/2014
    Great app, especially if you are into astronomy or radio. Or just want to see an aurora.

    Solid app. Would love to have a transparent live tile with current alerts or KP level...
  • by Joseph 9/17/2014
    I actually really enjoyed the old version of this app, when you had access to all the analysis data. You learn a lot that way! However, the new layout looks awesome and is user friendly. Best app out there for space weather either way.

    Good stuff, please continue to promote that space weather influences earth weather, and maybe the rest of the world will catch on
