The Sun has recently (2,000–105 years ago) entered an outflow of diffuse ISM from the Sco-Cen Association (Frisch 1994, Frisch et al. 2002), and is now surrounded by a warm low density partially ionized cloud. The Sun may encounter other possibly denser cloudlets in the flow, with one possibility being the “Aql-Oph” cloudlet that is within 5 pc of the Sun near the solar apex direction. A study of nearby ISM shows 96 interstellar absorption components are seen towards 60 nearby stars sampling ISM within 30 pc (Frisch et al.
