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.


A Solar Storm Comes with Flares on the Rise | Space Weather News 18 March 2024

This week our Sun kicks activity into high gear with multiple solar storm launches, including one that is Earth-directed. Although not a direct hit, it could bring aurora to mid-latitudes for a short while starting March 20. In addition, we have a whole cluster of active regions rotating into Earth-view. Several of these are big-flare players, including a returning region that was an X-flare player the last time it was in view. Amateur radio operators should expect more noise on the dayside radio bands along with periodic radio blackouts. GPS users should also stay vigilant, especially at high latitudes as we have an ongoing radiation storm that could affect reception. Also, when the solar storm hits, GPS reception could be more problematic near aurora and near dawn and dusk. Learn the details of the coming solar storm, watch the new flare activity, and see what else our Sun has in store.

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
