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 Fast Wind Burst & Solar Flux Boost | Space Weather News 02.28.2021

This week our Sun causes us to wait for some action to arrive. We have two coronal holes in view this week that will rotate into the Earth-strike zone over the next few days. These will bring some much needed aurora to high latitudes and possibly mid-latitudes during the early part of the week and again round the next weekend, especially since the last solar storm fizzled! In addition, we have several new bright regions on the Earth-facing Sun that are boosting the solar flux up into the low 80s and ensuring marginal radio propagation on the dayside of Earth. These regions are also firing minor flares so that means amatuer radio operators might hear a little noise on the bands. Sadly, these regions will rotate out of view over the next few days, which will drop the solar flux back into the 70s, but it shouldnt be too bad. At least the drop in solar flux will help GPS reception on Earth’s dayside, but reception on earth’s nightside will likely be impacted near dawn and dusk and at high latitudes near aurora once the fast solar wind arrives. Learn the details of the coming fast wind and see what else our Sun has in store!

How Does Space Weather Affect Us?

Here are some things to ponder:
