A group of scientists and amateur astronomers in the United States has discovered a planet with four Suns. It is the first time that a planet with so many Suns is observed.

The celestial body, PH1 baptised, runs in about 138 days to the two main Suns. On a larger distance are still two Suns, what makes the planet unique, said the researchers.

The name of the discovered planet, about 5000 light years away from the Earth, refers to the research programme Planet Hunters of Yale University where both amateurs and professional scientists participate.
