As Seen On:

” If you are fascinated by aurora and hope to see it someday (on or above our planet), you need to follow Tamitha Skov. “

Mike Fossum, NASA Astronaut

“We hold quarterly HF Communications Exercises with the Amateur Radio Community. Although the solar wind is great for aurora it’s a nightmare for us. Keep up the great work.”

Bob Jordan AAA2R9 / KD2BQM / WQSG766, Civil Affairs Officer, US Army MARS Region 2

“Your work is helpful, important, and inspiring– not only to me but also to my 12-year-old step daughter who now has an interest in space weather!”

Kiki Valentine, Independent Consultant

Dr. Tamitha Skov

Dr. Tamitha Skov is a new kind of weather forecaster for our modern world. As we become more reliant on technology like our cell phones, GPS (GNSS), and other satellite services we find we are more susceptible to the effects of Space Weather. Just like terrestrial weather on Earth, Space Weather can be as mild as a rainstorm or as wild as a hurricane.

Let Tamitha show you in non-science jargon how this new kind of weather impacts your daily life. You will never look at the Sun or the Earth in the same way again. After all, Space Weather is just like the weather in your own backyard, it’s just a little further up.

Solar Cycle 25 Stirs & Mercury Crosses the Sun | Space Weather News 11.07.2019

This week the action is all about the Sun! Not only have we had several bright regions grace the Sun’s face this past week, but one of them was a sunspot from the upcoming Solar Cycle 25. This sunspot (2750) even fired off a few low-level solar flares before receding beneath the Sun’s surface. In addition, we may have yet another Solar Cycle 25 bright region on the Sun’s farside as seen by STEREO. However, it will be a few days before this region rotates into Earth-view so we will just have to wait until we can take a closer look. Meanwhile, on November 11, we will have yet another treat passing across the Sun’s face and that is the rare transit of Mercury! This passage will coincide with some fast solar wind hitting Earth, so field reporters at high latitudes might be enjoying Mercury’s transit by day and an aurora show at night! Learn more about the transit of Mercury like when and where you can watch it, what these new bright regions are all about, and see what else our Sun has in store this week.
