View from hypothetical moon of Kepler-16b
Use your mouse or fingertip to experience a 360 view. On mobile, move your phone to see sky, ground and horizon. This is an artist's interpretation.

An artist’s illustration puts you on the surface of an imaginary moon around the cold gas giant Kepler-16b. Like Luke Skywalker’s home planet Tatooine from “Star Wars,” Kepler-16b orbits a pair of stars. This 2011 discovery by NASA’s Kepler mission was one of the first worlds found orbiting a binary star, proving that a double-sunset is anything but science fiction.
