It would be really interesting if Kepler finds a circumbinary planet orbiting this stellar trio.

A "circumtriple" planet would be an interesting discovery! Especially since these compact hierarchical triple stars are apparently quite rare.

This one is really weird: a couple of low-mass M dwarfs orbited by a K dwarf in eccentric orbit. cyclops
