Binary planets

RS 8414-008016777179-2 A8 is a Frozen Titan with subglacial organic life. A fairly average one, except for one thing...

It has a "moon" with 0.67009 Earth masses, whilst it itself has 0.67606 Earth masses. That means that the planet is only 0.9% more massive than its "moon."

Unfortunately, they orbit 294440.351 km apart, so it isn't visually spectacular.

Anyway, has anyone else found even more closely matched Binary planets? Or maybe physically closer ones? What about ones with the same mass but wildly different characteristics?

WOW! I especially like the eclipsing one, I think because the ring plane is almost the same as the plane of the galaxy!

I have a very interesting find....(And probably the most rare find I ever made in SE)

Two Binary Temperate Terras, orbiting around each other:


BOTH of them are very suitable for life (even human life!)


And now if that's rare enough...They BOTH Have life, and not only life, but Organic Multicellular life, both marine and terrestrial! And they orbit binary stars!


I imagine them being an advanced alien race that has colonized both of these planets, and go to and from these planets all the time (imagine ships all over constantly transporting each other back and forth through these planets, like a highway!)

Oh and they both eclipse each other too:






Also, a day on both of them is 24 hours (perfect for human sleep cycles!) and a year is about 301 days.

Master_Rambo Nice find!

What i found isn't really 2 planets orbiting, but i found an ice giant with life orbiting another gas giant.
In the middle of that, there's a Terra with life.

Where I can find these two worlds?! surprised

Nice one!




Along with fezes and bowties, brown dwarves are cool.

@anonymousgamer: Can you please tell me the procedural names of those 2 binaries (The ice giants and desert planets) you posted? The pictures don't have any info on them.
