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.

Two Solar Cycles at Once & A Big Meteor Nearly Hits | Space Weather News 10.10.2019

Our Sun keeps our attention focused even though space weather remains reasonably quiet this week. We have had several bright regions appear in Earth-view. The largest of these regions was strong enough to be officially designated as a sunspot (region 2749) from Solar Cycle 24. But then two high latitude bright regions emerged, one in the north and one in the south. These two regions both had Solar Cycle 25 polarity, which means this is one of the rare moments when we have active regions from two different solar cycles in both the northern and southern hemispheres in view at the same time! Unfortunately, if you blinked, you missed this rarity, as the new regions faded quite quickly. As a result, the solar flux has remained low and radio propagation continues to be poor on Earth’s dayside. We do have a remnant coronal hole rotating through the Earth-strike zone now. Its been sending us some sporadic fast solar wind, which has bumped us up to active conditions sporadically. However, aurora views are expected to be sporadic and elusive, especially at mid-latitudes. Take a closer look at the ongoing solar activity, including the new active regions, see how the fast solar wind hitting now will affect you, and learn about the meteor that nearly hit the ground in Southern California this week!

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
