The device Spitzer discovered young stars

Observing through Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered a young star system, which "flickers" every 3 months. The system, called YLW 16A, consists of three stars, two of which are surrounded by a disk of a certain matter that remains after the formation of stars.

Since the two inner stars circling around each other, 

sometimes they come out of the disk, which surrounds them like a hoop. The disc itself is slightly shifted away from the two central stars. Perhaps the reason for this is the presence of gravity-thirds of that is moving around the system. It is believed that this drive must continue to move on to new born planets and celestial bodies that make up the solar system.

Spitzer found in YLW 16A infrared radiation from the hot gas and dust disk, which is still around new stars.

YLW 16A is the fourth example of a system of stars of this type. Such systems allow scientists to explore the process of planet formation in these conditions. Worlds can move around one or two stars in their binary system. The famous fictional planet Tatooine from "Star Wars" is moving around the two stars, hence the observed double sunsets. These worlds are referred to with multiple planets orbit. Astronomers can observe how the light is absorbed by the drive time phases of the stars, which in turn makes it possible to obtain information about the material contained in the disk.
