Imagine on your next aurora chase that you have a companion - like R2D2 in the back of Luke's X-Wing.

This companion all sky camera robot will capture the whole night sky with timelapse imagery, providing a record of the evening's auroral activity.

2 second exposures for substorm

higher brightness and motion rate

15 second exposures for morning sector pulsing aurora

lower brightness and slower motion rate

30 second exposures for non-substorm features

low brightness, quite slow motion

So what's next for AurorEye, more features and more testing, as well as visualizations of the resulting imagery
