A strong solar wind is expected both tonight and tomorrow night, reports Stjörnufræðivefurinn, the Icelandic authority on stargazing. Charged particles stream from the small dark coronal hle seen in this image, on the right side of the light area in the middle. 

So tonight and tomorrow night make sure to stare at the sky!
