It’s a planet where it rains sand, says The Guardian. The celestial body, named Wasp-107b, lies about 200 light-years from Earth. Data from Nasa’s James Webb Space Telescope shows that the off-putting orb has 1,000C temperatures, raging winds, and silicate sand clouds which fall like precipitation. There’s also evidence of water vapour and sulphur dioxide, which would give the whole place a rather distinctive smell of burnt matches.
Ideal place for next year’s I’m a Celebrity.
gives a bit of meaning to the universe heh and our part in it - we are just in the right spot for ideal living conditions as long as we didn’t fight so much and through our rubbish in the air!!
From the title, I was wondering where it was raining sand. I’m glad it’s not on this planet.
We have had sand from the Sahara falling on us around here.
Where I live along the south coast, we occasionally have Sahara sand over our cars when the winds are in a certain direction and a wind storm has hit the Sahara Desert.
