Think it's the Castor system - the only one with 6 stars - senary star system smile

SpaceEngine can generate far more richer systems. Who will find the richest system? smile

a very interesting (hypothetical system) is - A Figure-of-Eight Star System

all three stars in perfect harmony smile

Atlas of the Universe - orbits

Such system is unstable, and never appears in nature - the 3 stars should have eqivalent mass and perfect initial velocities...

Exactly, that's why it's hypothetical smile

Such system is unstable,


It does say on the website that: Computer simulations have shown that this type of orbit can be stable for billions of years.

But it most likely doesn't happen very often at all due to having to be similar mass and having just the right speeds.

Artificial constructions such as pyramids can be stable for thousand of years, but they cannot be created by nature.

Ahh just found my own Sextuple system.
"RS 0-9-31210270-1304-2-9-128972676-3 1"

This Red Dwarf Orbits Two Brown Dwarfs


For the Other System we have an Orange Dwarf orbiting a Brown Dwarf and a Black Hole

I've found a septuple system!



I'd love to explain the planets in it but it's far too complicated :S

System is RS 0-5-14596-493-7586-8-35958-29

There's all sorts of cool stuff around this system too. Nebula's, neutron stars and black hole systems.

Found a septuple of my own, two clumps of several stars orbiting eachother:





Viewed through telescope:



(The faint upper-right-most dot is a very unfortunate planet)

Here's the place entry if you want to check it out

Here's a couple of septuples in my database:

sqlite> select name from stars where multiple = 7;
RS 8403-224-8-5254572-16
RS 8403-287-7-1430250-30

Sextuples are more common:

sqlite> select name from stars where multiple = 6;
RS 8403-224-6-84272-30
RS 8403-224-7-656790-28
RS 8403-224-7-658751-42
RS 8403-224-8-9134272-122
RS 8403-224-9-72959626-149
RS 8403-287-8-11917891-201
RS 8403-315-7-299646-20
RS 8403-315-7-301672-49
RS 8403-169-8-16053118-32

Size of the current database:

sqlite> select count(*) from stars;
75197

---------------------------------------------
Octuple:

$IMAGE1$

RS 8403-283-9-58495697-1179

EDIT: The upload of the attachment didn't work for some reason. It's basically two quadruple system bound together. All red and brown dwarfs.
