Glow Timelapse – How Long Will Aurora Glow?

In the video below, you’ll see a time lapse experiment we did to test how long the glows from Aurora last with different thicknesses.

We tried less than 1mm, 1-2mm, and 3-4mm thicknesses.

Timelapse Setup:

  • 24 hour run time.
  • 1 photo per minute (playback speed in video is at double speed to make viewing quicker).
  • Camera set to manual with fixed exposure settings to allow for true representation of glow variance over time.

Timelapse Conclusion:

  1. When 2-4mm thick and charged with sunlight for 2 hours, Aurora glow in the dark paint can remain visible for up to 24 hours!
  2. Aurora is brightest up to 6 hours.
  3. Aurora has good glows for 14-17 hours depending on thickness and charging.
  4. Keep Aurora above 2mm for best results.

Aurora, when used right, will outlast the night with strong glows all night long 🙂

We hope you found this video useful!
