NASA discovers new planet that orbits 2 suns



NASA found a new planet which orbits two suns.  The photo was taken using its Kepler Space Telescope.

Planets that orbit two stars are titled ‘Circumbinary Planets.’   The stars here are similar to our sun, with one slightly larger than our home star and the other slightly smaller.

The planet is the largest transiting circumbinary planet ever found.
