AuroraWatch UK currently receives no direct funding for staff time. All of the team are volunteers and work on the project in their spare time. However, the team are all employed by Lancaster University’s Department of Physics and, as part of their contracts, are allocated a small percentage of their time for outreach activities (which may include AuroraWatch UK).
The project has, however, received funding in the past both for staff time and for the purchase of various items of equipment. We rely on these funding sources to both continue and improve our free service. We gratefully acknowledge the following funding sources:
Faculty of Science & Technology (Lancaster University)
- January 2016: Dedicated auroral all-sky camera for AuroraWatch UK (£1200)
Details are currently incomplete. All funding sources will be added soon. Please contact us for more information.
