I was reading the transcript of Bilingual News and came across the word 雨粉 in a discussion about Mars.

None of the internet dictionaries I checked had this word. Google thought I was searching a Chinese word.

What is the reading - amegona? Something else?

I assume it means raindrop.

Edit: Perhaps I copied the word wrongly and it's actually ametsuba.

    So it says 「粉」 and not「粒」? – l'électeur Jun 4 '17 at 8:43

雨粉 must be a typo of 雨粒{あまつぶ} a raindrop or like that.

雨粒 is read ama-tsubu, neither ame-tsubu nor ame-tsuba.
