Out of this world discovery


(CNN) — Scientists believe they’ve discovered an exoplanet where iron rain falls during the night.

The exoplanet is named WASP-76B, and astronomers found it orbiting a star in the Pisces constellation.

Researchers believe blazing temperatures on this exoplanet turn molecules into atoms and metal into vapor, which then turns into iron rain.
