The caster can detect magical auras. The amount of information revealed depends on how long the caster studies a particular area or subject.
1st Round: Presence or absence of magical auras.
2nd Round: Number of different magical auras and the strength of the strongest aura.
3rd Round: The strength and location of each aura.
Magical areas, multiple types of magic, or strong local magical emanations may confuse or conceal weaker auras.
Aura Strength: An aura's magical power and strength depend on a spell's functioning spell level or an item's caster level.

Each round, the caster can turn to detect things in a new area. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.
