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 a Fast Wind Chaser | Space Weather News 04.13.2022

This week our Sun dims down a bit when it comes to sunspots, but not solar activity! We have an Earth-directed solar storm on its way. It will be followed by some fast solar wind that will serve to enhance the impact of this solar storm. Aurora photographers should get a good chance for aurora views even down to mid-latitudes over the next few days. Amateur radio operators and GPS users might experience some disruptions, especially on Earth’s nightside when the solar storm hits, but on Earth’s dayside radio propagation and GPS reception should be top notch. No radio blackouts are expected over the next couple of days, but we will have new regions rotating into Earth view near week’s end, and these might put big solar flares back on the menu! Learn the details of the coming solar storm, including views of the gorgeous filament launch from the Sun, and see why amateur radio operators and GPS users can rejoice on Earth’s dayside but should remain vigilant on Earth’s nightside this week!

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
