Auroras Now! is a space weather service maintaining by Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) to help watching auroras in Finland.

The service includes auroral monitoring with the all-sky cameras and magnetic field alarm systems for Northern and Southern Finland separately . The magnetic alarms are base on the data of magnetometers measuring the disturbance level of the Earth’s magnetic field at the geophysical observatories in Nurmijärvi and Sodankylä.

Bar charts and a map showing the magnitude of geomagnetic disturbances can be found on the Space weather page of the Finnish Meteorological Institute.
