”The Planet” and its world with three stars


“I think nature will have some other surprises in store for us as we continue exploring,” the author of discovery, Kevin Wagner, a doctoral student at the University of Arizona at Tucson, said. During part of the planet’s orbit, all three stars are visible on the same day, offering triple sunrises and sunsets and allowing for day and night. For about one-fourth of its year — around 100 to 140 Earth years — there’s continuous daylight. That’s because as the big sun is rising, the two smaller ones are setting. The discovery was discovered in the journal Science. For the instant the new discovered planet received the most simple temporary name possible: “The Planet.” It’s expected to be changed soon.
