Watch: Can It Rain on the Sun?

The answer may just surprise you

Showers were in the forecast for the sun recently, but not the kind we have here on Earth. This video, taken with the Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) aboard the Hinode satellite, shows plasma at roughly 14,000–36,000 degrees F shooting out from the surface of the sun. As it cools, the plasma is pulled back toward the sun by gravity in a phenomenon known as "Coronal Rain."
