My name is Tamitha Skov and I want to open your world to something that is going to become critical to your daily life sooner than you think. Its called Space Weather. Sound hard to believe?

Think of all the technology we take for granted, like GPS and traffic apps on mobile phones, robotic drones and UAVs that have begun flying above our heads, high-altitude airline flights, satellite internet, satellite phones, Direct TV, even Sirius Radio -- all of these things are adversely affected by Space Weather.  As we become more reliant on smart, wireless technologies, our dependence upon Space Weather grows. Even today, emergency radio communications used by disaster relief agencies like the Red Cross depend upon what Space Weather is doing. Imagine, with no power and no cell phones, not being able to get through to your loved ones when its most important. Yet despite our growing reliance on Space Weather, very few people are even aware of it.

You may have already seen me raising awareness of Space Weather on these media outlets:


Why I am on Patreon:

I have been doing Space Weather forecasts nearly once a week on You Tube for about the past four years. I’ve had many people tell me this isn’t enough when it comes to forecasting the weather, but there is only so much I can cram in on the weekends with a full-time job. So, to answer the call, Ive decided to take a risk and drop down to part-time. I do this so I am free to do what so many of my colleagues, friends, and fans have asked of me as the Space Weather Woman

  1. Create more frequent video forecasts
  2. Create more educational content, courses, and do live Q&A
  3. Build a new field for Space Weather broadcasting

These are just a few of the ways I can give back to you for all you done for me on this amazing journey. It’s a journey that is far from over. By becoming a patron, you get to access exclusive information, sneak peeks into my plans, and dive into the powerful force that drives this vision. In fact, I’m hoping you will become part of this powerful force. This is your chance to help me build something so much bigger than all of us-- something that will benefit this generation and the next. It’s all up to you how much you'd like to get involved.

How does this change the free stuff I'm used to getting?

It doesn't. As always, my regular forecasts on You Tube will remain just as they are, available to everyone on a weekly basis and free of pesky ads. Just in case youre wondering.

I hope I’ve given you a sense of the urgent responsibility I feel to expand our understanding of space and how it connects with our world. There is no time to waste because we are rapidly advancing beyond the boundaries of our own planet on our way to becoming a spacefaring society. Its a very exciting time. On the horizon, I see a future in which we are all connected with a global awareness of Space Weather. Let us stand at the rim of space together and reshape what we think of it. Help me create a world prepared for the future.

I have created a 501(c)(3) charity organization for this purpose so your patronage is totally tax deductible! 
Tiers
Space Weather Wonderful
$1 or more per month
This tier gets you access to the most important part of this community: its heart. This is The Wonderful World of Space Weather forum where we dive into the phenomenology and forecasts with graphics, animations, and more. These Patreon-only posts give us a chance to have more detailed dialogues than is possible on other platforms (like Twitter, Facebook, and You Tube). You also get early access to my weekly video forecasts, before they are available to the public!
Space Weather WOW!
$2 or more per month
This tier is for you amazing people, who want to give me that extra boost! You get all the perks of joining the Space Weather Wonderful Tier, plus I will add you to my weekly email newsletter. This newsletter is where I share personal insights on the week's forecast and thoughts about what is to come. You also get a special behind the scenes picture you wont find anywhere except at higher tiers! (If you already receive my newsletter, don't worry, you will not be emailed twice!) 
Forecast Shorties
$5 or more per month
For those who asked me for additional forecasts during the week, this tier is for you! Support at this level will bring you the popular Mid-Week Forecast Shorties. I will do one extra video a week in addition to my regular You Tube forecasts, in which I update the space weather conditions and 5-day outlooks so you will always be in the know, no matter what the Sun might throw our way!  This tier also includes all the perks from the previous tiers! 
Rocket to My World
$7 or more per month
This is ideal for those of you, who want to get to know me better. At this level of support you get to glimpse into my world, see what I am doing, how I am doing it, and where I will go next. I will produce one video a month (along with a lively discussion in the forum) and the subjects will range from the philosophy behind what I am trying to help create to the driving inspirations that keep me going, even when things get tough. You'll see candid footage shot in and out of the studio and you'll get to experience this Space Weather World, intimately through my eyes.   This tier also includes all the perks from the previous tiers! 
Q&A LIVE Mini-Courses
$10 or more per month
Do you wish I would teach more? Then this tier is for you! I will do a  LIVE stream once a month that dives deep into topics requested by the community. Depending upon the topic, the stream may be open to the public, but Patrons at this level will have advance notice and first priority in getting their questions answered at length. I will respond to comments during the session and will even pull up graphics or movies on a big TV behind me to help convey the story. This is ideal for those who want to really learn the core concepts of Space Weather, as many of these streams will turn into mini-courses relating to the Sun and how it interacts with the planetary bodies in our solar system, including Earth.  This tier also includes all the perks from the previous tiers! 
VIP Steering Committee
$25 or more per month
(limited spots) Once a month I will hold a private group video call accessible via the web. The spots are limited so it will be much like a group of friends and colleagues getting together. During this call, we can discuss Space Weather topics and dive deeper into things like future directions for this community and what new types of content I should consider providing. This is your chance to help steer the wheel of the ship we are sailing and have your voice heard. This tier also includes all the previous tiers!
Radiant Star Sponsorship
$100 or more per month
(limited spots) For such stellar patronage, at this level I will proudly display your name, picture or your logo within each forecast video (including my regular You Tube forecasts and mid-week shorties) right after the opening segment. This is perfect for those of you, who want higher visibility for your own brand while showing support for the Space Weather Woman. Considering each of my forecast videos get more than 5,000 views on average and climbing, this means 45-50K views of your brand every month!  This tier also includes all the perks in previous tiers.
One On One
$200 or more per month
(limited spots) You have my enduring gratitude and my undivided attention! At this level you get a PRIVATE One-On-One with me over Google Hangouts or Skype for 30 minutes once a month. We can talk about Space Weather or life in general, whatever you'd like. If you don't have questions, I will ask you some instead.  This tier includes all the perks from the previous tiers (except the Radiant Star Sponsorship tier). 
Goals
88 of 100 patrons
For the first 100 people who back me I will release a special thank you video that speaks to you directly from my heart. Those of you supporting me at reward tiers above $5 will get an even a more personalized dedication.
