How do I make a citizen science report?

Last Updated: Sep 20, 2014 06:54PM UTC
Citizen science reports can be filed from the Aurorasaurus homepage or with the Aurorasaurus mobile app. Answer the question “Did you see the aurora?” near the top of the main webpage and you will be taken to the report form. On the mobile app, choose the option to “Make a Report” from the main menu.

For positive sightings, you will be asked questions about your location, the time, the color and type of the aurora you observed, and how high the aurora appeared in the sky.

When reporting your location, be as specific as you would like (ex: street address, zip code, city). Don’t worry, we won’t disclose your exact location! Tweets are placed on the map randomly within 1 km of the location you report according to our <privacy policy>.

If you are logged in as a registered Aurorasaurus user, you will get points for making a report. You can also file a report anonymously.
