Yes, this is the same plasma found in plasma TVs, but other examples of plasma you may be unaware of include fluorescent lamps, neon signs, and lightning. Needless to say, you wouldn't want to breathe any of these, let alone live on a planet in which the air itself was plasma.
Neon is perfectly safe to breathe, as long as there's enough oxygen in the mix.

There's a deep sea diving gas mixture called Neoquad, which is a mixture of oxygen, nitrogen, helium and neon.

There's also Neox or Neonox, which is a simpler mix of neon and oxygen, used rarely in deep commercial diving.

On topic though, I'd consider the plastic snowfall on Titan to be one of the weirder weather phenomenoms. ;)

Saturn's Hexagon Storm [http://www.space.com/18674-saturn-vortex-hexagon-storm-photos.html] didn't even make it onto the list?

It's by far the strangest weather pattern found to date.

Nifty article. There are a lot more weird phenomena out there, but this was a nice selection. I'm always confused by these sorts of articles on a gaming website, but also always pleased. It... makes no sense to me... but I like them. Especially because, well, the geeky among us tend to like pop-sciency articles even when there's no connection to video games whatsoever. Broaden the horizons a tiny bit, basically.
