It snows metal on planet Venus! There are two types that have been found, galena and bismuthinite.

It has been proposed that life on Venus could exist there, the same way that bacteria have been found living and reproducing in clouds on Earth. Any such bacteria living in the cloud tops, however, would have to be hyper-acidiphilic, due to the concentrated sulfuric acid environment.
