Solar wind is a stream of charged particles ejected from the upper atmosphere of the sun, consisting mostly of electrons and protons. These charged particles escape the sun’s gravity because of both the high temperature of the corona and the high amount of kinetic energy the particles gain (the process of achieving this high kinetic energy is not well understood).
The solar wind creates the heliosphere, geomagnetic storms, the aurorae such as the Northern Lights, and the plasma tails of comets that point away from the sun.
