I hope that most of us are aware of how beautiful the sunsets here on Earth truly are, but can you imagine what a sunset would be like with two stars/suns? Many people have wondered about this over the last several years. You know, like if “binary” stars could support planets. The common query was: "Could planets like the Tatooine from Star Wars really exist?"

Well, I remember reading about this a couple years ago when they first found such a system out in the cosmos (Kepler-16b). I went back today (for a web search, not into the Universe) and seen that their count for planets with two stars has reached 7, so far, but that number could quickly rise. It just goes to show, once again, that our imagination is often way ahead of what we can currently call reality. Many of y'all may have visualized such things long ago, but until a couple years ago, the humanoids on this planet didn't know if it was possible or not.

We are well aware of planets having multiple moons, of course, but that doesn't seem as bizarre as looking up into the sky and seeing two suns, now does it? The primary chatter you usually hear about this topic today, is from the conspiracy nuts that are always claiming to see Planet X/Nibiru sitting beside our sun in the sky while using photographic filters and whatnot, but that is another subject entirely.

Anyway, if you'd like to read a recent article about this subject, go here: www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=the-discovery-of-planets-with-two-suns
