I have a rather odd question. I was watching the sunset today and started a series of thought....and it all led up to this:::: is it possible for two stars of the same size, or even of different sizes, to have one planet orbiting both, and be far enough away from each other that the planet orbits in a figure eight? in other words, would the pull of gravity of one star start the orbit and the pull of gravity of the next pull it off course and make it orbit around itself, then back and forth, so that it causes the planet to orbit in a figure eight? a rather out there question....just something i'm curious about and could think of no better place to find the answer than in a forum of physics geniuses... Thanks!
