Fort Davis, Tx - A major discovery in the world of Astronomy has been made by the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis.
They have found the first solar system with several planets orbiting two suns.
Scientists have found a day on those planets would last nearly seven and a half days here on Earth.
A problem with studying this Solar System is that the stars are so faint, but the equipment at the McDonald's Observatory helped get the information scientists need to learn about the planets.
