Ever Imagined: A planet orbiting two suns

Ever Imagined: A planet orbiting two suns

Discovered for the first time a planet orbiting a binary star system, passing in front of both its parent stars along its orbit

The planet, Kepler-16b, resembles Saturn in its mass and gaseous makeup. That mostly rules out the possibility of any living beings being present to enjoy the double sunset view, although chances are good Kepler-16b has an icy, non-gaseous satellite or two, as Saturn does.

If any one of you has watched Starts wars Episode IV, they might have imagined how beautiful the scene could be as predicted , incase some one missed those scenes, they can watch the below video

Here is an animated video
