And you thought acid rain was bad?
As it turns out, it literally rains fire on the sun.
In a video released this week, NASA highlighted yet another beautiful, hellish phenomenon of our nearest star, coronal rain.
Thanks to the sun's magma twisting and braiding and swirling the star's countless magnetic fields every which way, occasionally things get a little messy. Such as on July 19, when a moderately powerful solar flare burst hot plasma out from the surface.
