Fittingly, it was raining in Prince’s hometown of Chanhassen, Minnesota in the hours after news of his death broke. People have been sharing images of the downpour with the hashtag #PurpleRaining.
While the heavens were opening up in Minnesota, NASA posted a photo from the skies much further above of a purple nebula.
