We had what would have been a sun shower, had the sun been up. Rain was falling from a mostly clear and starry sky. That's the problem with calling them sun showers. What are they called at night? Saying "the Devil is beating his wife" is awkward, in addition to making no sense even in daylight. Can't call them star showers, because that suggests meteors. True, the sun is a star and thus the stars are like distant suns, but that isn't a fact that readily comes to mind. That pretty much lets out "nocturnal sun shower" (which sounds like a euphemism for something naughty, anyway.) Crap. A little bit of rain falls out of a clear night sky, and it turns me into Andy Rooney.
