Coronal Rain

I love new words and phrases and had no idea this topic even existed, but it’s now even got some really cool computer simulations to show how it works.

Coronal rain is a phenomenon that occurs in the sun’scorona. It occurs when hot plasma in the corona cools and condenses in strong magnetic fields, usually associated with regions that produce solar flares. The plasma is attracted to the magnetic fields where it condenses and slowly falls back to the solar surface
