Four Suns by DeepChrome Four Suns by DeepChrome
I've been doing some late-night astronomy-themed Wikicrawls, and discovered a nice little site called planetplanet.net by an astronomer (or astronomy enthusiast, but since they talked about working with a team to get time on Hubble, I'm guessing a professional in the field). This has given me all kinds of ideas based off Legit Science for my artwork.

One of these was the 4-star binary system: two cooler-than-Sun stars orbiting a common gravitational center, this planet orbiting them, and a pair of red dwarf stars orbiting a common center in an orbit about the same place as Jupiter's or a touch closer. Probably should've made the red stars a little smaller, don't think they'd actually be that big at Jupiter's distance, given small red dwarfs are Jupiter's size or smaller at times. (Just see TRAPPIST-1...)

Anyways, had lots of fun making this one! I'm a sucker for alien landscapes with multiple suns in the sky. You can blame George Lucas and that double-sunset on Tattoonie in A New Hope for that.

Next up: Probably a planet inside of a star cluster...

Thought that was in my last journal. It's by the same name as on here, just in lowercase letters. :)

Looks really cool! I like the minimalist style of the picture, it leads the focus straight to the suns. I really like the color scheme too, not to mention the concept:) Best wishes and have a nice day!:)
