Alerts are posted whenever we have interesting news to share! Alerts appear in the red banner bar at the top of the main screen and are shared globally via our Twitter and Facebook accounts. Alerts also appear at the bell symbol near the top of the app. We will alert you that knew blog entries are available, if there is a storm watch in effect, and whether or not strong aurora is expected. Alerts are NOT based on your specific location. To receive information about your local viewing conditions, you must sign up for notifications through your profile.
Alerts will post (to your account only) when you earn points and receive badges.
