  <dc:description>Aurorasaurus citizen science data is a collection of auroral sightings submitted to the project via its website (aurorasaurus.org) or apps and mined from social media. It is a robust data set and particularly abundant during strong geomagnetic storms. This data is offered to the scientific community for research use through an open-access database in its raw and scientific formats for the 2015-2016 period, each of which is described in detail in the following technical report:

Kosar, B. C., MacDonald, E. A., Case, N. A., &amp; Heavner, M. (2018). Aurorasaurus Database of Real‐Time, Crowd‐Sourced Aurora Data for Space Weather Research. Earth and Space Science, 5(12), 970-980.
