Scientists used the transit satellite to study NASA's exoplanets to find an exoplanet with three red suns.
The LTT 1445Ab explosion circles about one of the three suns, all of which are described as red dwarfs from mid to late life. "The planet goes through the main star in the system," the researchers explain, in a document that is available in the arXiv scientific repository. The planet is described as a radius that is 1.38 R_Earth, meaning it is a bit over a third of the planet's surface, bigger than our planet.
Space.com reports that the LTT 1445 Ab system is 22.5 light-years. A light year measuring space in space is equal to 6 trillion miles.
A red dwarf, or "M dwarf" in astronomical terms, is "the smallest, most abundant and longest lived star in our galaxy," NASA MISSION REPLIES THE FIRST PLANET

Scientists are intrigued by the discovery of the LTT 1445 Ab system. "This is the second closest transit exoplanet system to date, and the closest known to which the primal dwarf M, "they explain in their study.
