Just came across a gas giant with an orbital period of 29135.8 years orbiting two stars. Thought that was quite a bit, but maybe someone has found some even longer orbital period.

Place "Gas Giant 29135"

Mmm, surface temperature averages 12 Kelvins. Sounds comfy. tongue

Also, the semimajor axis is a thousand AU? Wow, even Sedna doesn't go out that far.

Got one with a 31791 year orbit around a sextuple star system.

Are we including moons in this? I've got one that's a bit smaller than Callisto with a 1.125 year orbit. It's retrograde, so it's a captured object.
