It's raining plasma! Hallelujah?
Ok, maybe not so much if it were here on Earth.
Luckily, NASA's Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS, captured video of plasma rain on the sun's surface. That's much more acceptable.
The video, which was captured on July 24, shows a solar flare, which is a powerful explosion of radiation.
"During flares, a large amount of magnetic energy is released, heating the sun's atmosphere and releasing energized particles out into space," according to NASA.
Observing these flares helps scientists study how solar energy and material move throughout the sun's lower atmosphere.
Later on in the video, the plasma rain starts falling.
