Flag for HD 188753 or rather the Jim Henson Star System

One of the many possible views
from in this triple Star System

In 1982 Jim Henson created the imaginative world of the Dark Crystal. In it we see a planet with three suns. There were many scientists who argued that planets could not exist in such a system. Well in 2005 a planet was found in a triple star system. Henson was right, thus a fitting name for this star system is the Jim Henson Star System.
