# Trinary star system - Tidal locked planet [closed]

I'm trying to build a world where an earth-like planet is tidal locked to a sun in a three star system, where the other two would orbit each other in the center (being the central mass of the system). Is it possible? What is the perfect star scenario to life exist in the planet? Would the two stars in the center have a Sunrise/Sunset effect in this planet? Would there be a way to control time passing through those two suns (like they appearing in the scenery in an year time lapsing, or something like this). Thank you!

• Well they couldnt orbit close to each other. For why google "Three Body Problem". If they are close together eventually one star is either going to be ejected or collide with another. From the data we have, you can have two stars orbit each other and a 3rd orbiting the pair at some distance. Prosumably you could have all three stars orbit close ish so that they are always in the center. Jun 27 at 20:39
• Not really clear where the stars are and masses, Start from largest mass. eg start A is 6 M_sun star B is 2 M_sun and 5 AU away from A they have a circular orbit. star C of .9 M_sun is 100 to 110 AU away from A,B. in a slightly elliptical orbit, Planet in question is orbiting star C at 1AU distance and is 1 M_earth. Makes it much easier to determine what conditions the planet would experience to know those basic numbers. Jun 27 at 21:08
• The question should be asking only one clear question so that it is easier to determine what answers are better, The current question body has multiple questions, please edit the question body to have only one question Jun 27 at 21:12
