The ESO’s Very Large Telescope has been used to discover a planet where it reaches over 2,400 degrees Celsius during the day and vaporizes metal particles. After the daytime heat has vaporized the metal, it cools down enough during the night to condense them into droplets and rain iron. Known as WASP-76b, the planet is located in the Pisces constellation around 640 lightyears away. What allows this to happen is that only one side of the planet ever faces the sun. Winds then blow the evaporated metal to the “night” side where it rains in the evening. The day side of the planet receives thousand of times more radiation from its sun than the earth does form ours.
