William also sent in a link to www.yahoo.com/news/massive-planet-10-times-bigger-224427538.html … and you can read the same story at https://weather.com/en-IN/india/space/news/2021-12-10-planet-ten-times-t… … and https://phys.org/news/2021-12-large-telescope-images-planet-massive.html … which is all a bit over the top as the planet is not really orbiting two suns, as in two solar systems, but orbiting very high in a two star system. It is orbiting at 100 times the distance of Jupiter from our sun and is reputed to be ten times the size of Jupiter. The discovery comes from the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope [VLT].
