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.

Space Weather Woman

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.


The Sun Pranks Us with a Halo | Space Weather Spotlight 6 June 2024

Our Sun decides to play a prank on us by launching a far sided solar storm at the same time Region 3697 on the front sided Sun fired off an X-class flare. The combination of events caused many would-be forecasters to assume we had a strong solar storm headed towards us again, just like we did in early May. But Nope! The Sun was simply testing to see who was paying close attention. This is a real reminder that although space weather phenomena are easy to see, they arent always easy to interpret properly. Learn the details of this solar prankster, see what regions are lurking on the far side, and find else our Sun has in store this week.
