anonymous asked:

Can you name a few planets where it rains things? I was telling my little sister how it rains neon on Jupiter and she wants to know more.

Hello, we can find other types of rain not only on other planets, but also on moons and even brown dwarfs.

For example because of the high temperature some brown dwarfs can raining molten-iron.

and there is also rain of hydrocarbons (methane and liquid ethane) on Saturn’s moon Titan.

We can also mention diamond rain in Neptune, sulfuric acid rain on Venus and rain of glass on the exoplanet HD 189733b.

Below I will leave some links to that:
