Amateur astronomers find new worlds
Planet Hunters together with the staff of Yale University first discovered planet in the system of four stars.
The planet is in the system KIC 4862625. This system consists of two pairs of stars. Two planets represent dwarfs with a mass of 1.5 to 0.4 of the mass of the Sun. When they rotate, they periodically occlude one another, which is not contributing to their visibility. In addition, the treatment is present and a third party, but that it is the astronomers there, and it was not clear. Up to this time.
It is now absolutely clear that it is really a planet orbiting two stars, around which revolve two stars.
As it happened, scientists still do not understand…
