Jupiter-Size Alien World Is Biggest 'Tatooine' Planet with 2 Suns Ever Found

Jupiter-Size Alien World Is Biggest 'Tatooine' Planet with 2 Suns Ever Found

That's only moderately interesting, but more intriguing is this paragraph:

"Kepler-1647b also resides in its stars' habitable zone, the range of distances at which liquid water could be stable on a world's surface. Kepler-1647b is a gas giant, so it doesn't have a surface — but any moons circling the huge planet could conceivably be capable of supporting life as we know it."

Those moons would have two suns and a gigantic planet in their skies, and might support life-forms capable of looking at that vista.
