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 Big-Flare Players Come and Go as Fast Wind Enters | Solar Storm Forecast 09.16.2022

This week we say goodbye to big flare player region 3098 and hello to region 3102 as we wait for even bigger flare player, old region 3089 to rotate back into Earth-view. This means we are getting a slight reprieve when it comes to radio blackouts from big flares on Earth’s dayside. Amateur radio operators and GPS users should breathe a sigh of relief as dayside disruptions should be significantly reduced this week. Radio noise remains an issue but propagation should remain in the good range. We do have a coronal hole rotating into the Earth-strike zone, which will bring us some fast solar wind through the weekend, but it will be comparatively mild compared to what we experienced at the beginning of September. Aurora photographers at high latitudes have a decent chance of aurora shows, but photographers at mid-latitudes will only have sporadic shows through the weekend. Learn more about the new flare players rotating into view, find out when and where aurora might be visible, and see why satellite operators must remain vigilant this week.
