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 Dark Coronal Hole & Stealthy Solar Storm Combo-Pack: Space Weather News 23 March 2023

This week our Sun switches gears, with solar flare activity falling and solar storm activity picking up. We have a stealthy solar storm lurking in front of some fast solar wind coming this week, in fact, the stealthy solar storm has just arrived! The initial impact is strong (at a G3-level, but it has diminished slightly). The nice thing is that this storm looks stronger than anticipated so we could easily get some aurora down to mid-latitudes over the next couple of days. Aurora photographers should be sure to keep their batteries charged. As for amateur radio operators and GPS users, they should be smiling this week as the big flare players of last week have all rotated to the Sun’s farside. We have dropped down to minor noise conditions with a low chance for radio blackouts on the dayside of Earth. This means propagation and reception will stay good on the dayside, but the nightside will be impacted due to the solar storm effects. Learn the details of the solar storm hitting Earth now, find out when and where aurora will be visible and see what else is in store!

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
