Methane Rain

Another cool phrase I like: Methane Rain.

That’s the sort of precipitation that falls on Saturn’s moon, Titan—a place where daytime temps hover around -179°C, and “torrential rains of liquid methane fall from the skies,” creating vast, shallow lakes on the surface, notes Discover Magazine.

If there’s life there, we can bet it’ll be pretty weird.
