Caltech astronomer Maciej Konacki has discovered a world with 3 suns.
"With three suns, the sky view must be out of this world," says Konacki, who likens it to the vista seen by Luke Skywalker in Star Wars as he watches two suns set from his home planet of Tatooine.
Incidentally, this discovery casts significant doubt on current theories of planetary formation.
