An international team of astronomers have announced the discovery of a strange planet in a faraway solar system that contains three suns.

The astronomers’ given name of planet is "HD 131399Ab".

According a US journal Science, it appears even more unusual than the home planet of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, Tatooine, which orbited around two suns.

The experts said those involving three stars or more were rare.

The planet is located about 340 light years from Earth in the constellation Centaurs.

The cosmic body is believed to be relatively young which about 16 million years old is.

The scientist believed that it is one of the youngest planets discovered outside our solar system to date.

Its mass is four times that of the gas giant Jupiter.

It orbits the brightest of the three stars on a very long and wide path.
