Aurora is a 1969 album by American psych-rock band Stained Glass.

Influenced by British Invasion bands, often leading to confusion where they came from, this San Jose trio had been a singles act on RCA Records as far back as 1966. Released in late 1969, Aurora was the finale of a two-album career at Capitol Records (Crazy Horse Roads came out earlier that year). This album is musically superior to the first, especially on tracks 'The Kibitzer' and 'Inca Treasure', performed with a loose-but-definite air of late-sixties improvisation. Stained Glass broke-up shortly after this release.
