Rain, snow, sleet, and hail are common forms of precipitation. The type you’re accustomed to, and how often you see it, varies based on the climate you live in. But regardless of form, the precipitation we encounter here on Earth is made up of water. Other planets, and moons, also experience varied forms of precipitation. Rainstorms and snowfalls that occur elsewhere in the universe are comprised of different elements than what we experience on Earth. This results in some very interesting phenomena, from ruby showers to gasoline downpours.
