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
Great, consistent content. I appreciate especially how the presenter IDs groups for whom data points might be relevant: aurora photogs, air travelers, radio operators. The job is definitely futuristic. It’s just that the future, finally, is now.

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 Storms Amid a Solar Eclipse | Space Weather News 06.09.2021

This week our Sun keeps us on our toes with a near Earth-directed solar storm and a “Ring of Fire” solar eclipse. Although the solar storm will go mainly east of Earth, the NASA prediction model shows a slight chance that the storm will graze us on June 11. Likely, we wont even notice the storm’s passage, but it is worth mentioning because it could extend the minor storming we’ve been having at high latitudes over the past several days from a pocket of fast solar wind. There are also four sunspots on the Earth-facing Sun this week and they have boosted the solar flux into the 80s! this means we are well into the marginal range for radio propagation on Earth’s dayside and continuing to climb. In fact, we will have more regions rotating into Earth view over the next few days and that should ensure solar flux will continue this upward trend! Learn details on the multiple front-sided and far-sided solar storms launched over the past few days, find out when and where the annular eclipse will be visible, and what else our Sun has in store this week.

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
