The expansion speed of the Universe is increasing (Glanz 1998). This acceleration is attributed to dark energy which acts almost uniformly everywhere (including the Solar system) and thus essentially influences the Hubble constant. Its current value on a distance of 1 AU is H0 = 10 m/(yr AU). This is quite a large number and thus, the impact of dark energy should be detectable in the Solar system. We will illustrate it by several examples. Dark energy may partially be caused by gravitational aberration of the Sun, planets and other bodies.
