Planet orbits two suns
NASA found a planet in orbit around a double star. These twin stars are 200 light-years away from us in the constellation Cygnus, and each one has a slightly different hue.
"You have an orange star that's 69 percent the mass of the sun, and it is basically dancing with a 20-percent-the-mass-of-the-sun red star," he says. "And they go around each other every 41 days." http://www.npr.org/2011/09/15/140499991/here-come-the-suns-new-planet-orbits-two-stars
