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.

One Storm Down, One to Go | Solar Storm Forecast 02.05.2020

Space Weather has been calming down over the past few days since a solar storm hit Earth at the turn of the month. However, more fast solar wind is coming, which could give us another chance for aurora at high latitudes into the weekend, with views possibly extending down to mid-latitudes for a short while. Although sunspot 2757 has now rotated to the Sun’s farside, we do have two new bright regions rotating into Earth-view on the Sun’s east limb. These regions are helping to keep radio propagation on Earth’s dayside in the marginal range. Expect solar flux to remain in the low 70s this week. GPS users should continue to enjoy good GPS reception on Earth’s dayside thanks to a spotless Sun, but on Earth’s nightside, GPS reception could get a little dicey near dawn and dusk, and anywhere near aurora once the solar storm hits. Learn the details of the coming fast solar wind, catch up on aurora photos from the recent storm, and see what else our Sun has in store!

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
