Weirdest thing happened to my 2018 Kia Optima today .Everything was fine when we left then drove to palm desert stopped at Starbucks . Then noticed while walking back to the car how the top of my car by the sunroof was completely shattered. Have no clue what happened. Was wondering if any one has experienced this before. We seriously have no idea how this happened.

I haven't heard of it before, but you're not alone:

If you look closely at the picture, it looks like in the closest part of the picture there is what appears to be an impact crack. Possibly unrelated to the rest of the glass shattering but still it may have been a rock bounced and hit the glass. I've been driving and had a rock come straight down on my glass before from being thrown almost straight up in the air by another car. Either it hit during the drive to Palm Springs or possibly it hit a while ago and the glass eventually failed due to microfractures which can slowly spread through the glass after prior damage.
