    Rise & Shine with Solar Flares: Solar Storm Forecast 24 May 2018. Tamitha Skov.

    The Sun wakes up this week with several new bright regions that have rotated into Earth-view. The newest of these regions has been actively firing solar flares since it was on the Sun's backside. All this activity has boosted the solar flux so amateur radio operators and emergency responders are enjoying decent radio propagation. Meanwhile some pockets of fast wind continue to pummel Earth, keeping things at unsettled conditions. The wind isn't fast enough to bring us up to storm levels and bring aurora down to mid-latitudes, but it is enough to help improve GPS reception at low latitudes. Learn more about the new active regions, when the next solar storm is expected, and what else the Sun has in store for us this week.

      A Horse Gallops into the Earth-Strike Zone: Solar Storm Forecast 31 May 2018. Tamitha Skov.

      Solar activity stays elevated this week as a big coronal hole sends us some fast solar wind that could bump us up to storm levels. Aurora photographers should be ready for aurora views over the next couple of days. These views could reach mid-latitudes for a short while and linger at high latitudes through early next week. Amateur radio operators are also enjoying marginal radio propagation this week due to bright region 2712 with the promise of new regions rotating into Earth-view in a couple of days. GPS operators should also be enjoying clean reception of signals this week on the Earth's dayside. However, once the solar storm hits, GPS might have issues near aurora and near the dawn-dusk terminators. Learn the details of the coming storm and see what else our Sun has in store.

        A Bright and Bumpy Ride: Solar Storm Shortie 8 August 2018

        The Sun sends us multiple pockets of fast solar wind that will keep us at unsettled conditions pretty much this entire week. This is good news for GPS users at low latitudes that will appreciate the improved reception. Aurora photographers at high latitudes might also get some sporadic aurora views. The Sun also turns up the brightness for amateur radio operators and emergency responders with the second of two bright regions rotating into Earth-view this week. This means radio propagation has bumped back to marginal levels on Earth's day side and will likely stay this way over the next week. See details on these events and what else the Sun has in store. (This end-of-week forecast shortie is made possible by the members of my Patreon project-- Thank You!)

            TamithaSkov propagation forecast 19 March 2020

            This week space weather stays relatively calm, however, we do have some nice eye-candy, both at Earth and from our Sun. This eye-candy, which includes some gorgeous views of aurora on Earth from recent solar storms & flare activity from the new bright regions on our Sun, should soothe your mind from the craziness in the world right now due to COVID-19. As for our star, two new bright regions from solar cycle 25 have emerged. One has even fired off the first long-duration flare attributed to the new solar cycle. Although this long-duration flare did not bring us a radio blackout or an Earth-directed solar storm, it nevertheless is noteworthy in that it is heralding even more firsts from the upcoming solar cycle. in addition, we also have pockets of fast solar wind that are keeping us at unsettled conditions and bringing aurora to high latitudes over the next several days. Solar flux is remaining in the low 70s, which means radio propagation will stay in the marginal range for radio propagation over the next week. GPS reception also remains good overall through this next week. Learn the details of the recent solar flare and what it means for the coming solar cycle, see some recent aurora that will ease your mind and soul, and see what else our Sun has in store this week.
