WASHINGTON, 8th July, 2016 (WAM)–A gaseous planet with three suns and a mass four times that of Jupiter has been spotted by astronomers.

Located 320 light years away in the constellation of Centaurus the planet, known as HD 131399Ab, goes one better than Luke Skywalker’s home planet of Tatooine in the film Star Wars, which famously boasted two sunrises.

They said the stars have different temperatures which give them different colours so there would be a bluer, a yellower and a redder star.

While a handful of planets are currently known to exist in three-star systems, the 16-million-year-old HD 131399Ab is one of the youngest planets to be discovered outside our solar system.
