I wonder where the center of gravity is for this hot Jupiter planets orbit. And what a sight in the night sky.

Yeah, I really liked the artist's rendering of it.

Fantastic discoveries all the time, & no gawds in sight......hmmmmm......

Nice pictures

Can you imagine peering out at a sky with three Suns. Wouldn't that be weird.

.......and THEN maybe we'd learn to wear hats & sunscreen!!!!
