Aurora is an extended play album by the progressive rock band Asia. It was a limited number release, exclusive to Japan, in 1986.

"Too Late" was originally on the 1985 album Astra.

"Ride Easy", never given regular release on a studio album, was originally released only as a B-side, on the 7" 45 rpm single "Heat of the Moment" in 1982.

During an interview on the 2007 released Asia DVD "Fantasia: Live in Tokyo ", lead vocalist John Wetton indicated that "Ride Easy" is one of his favorite Asia songs.

"Daylight" was originally on the cassette release of 1983 album Alpha.[1]

"Lying to Yourself", never given regular release on a studio album, was originally released only as a B-side, on the 7" 45 rpm single "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" in 1983. Later compilation albums list this track as "Lyin' to Yourself".

All three B-sides were released on the compilation The Very Best of Asia: Heat of the Moment (1982-1990).
