More Weird News

So some astronomers have found a planet outside our solar system with three suns, which they then quickly nicknamed 'the Tatooine planet'. Now I'm a pretty big Star Wars geek, I've got numerous video and computer games, have a virtual library of Star Wars books, own the first trilogy on VHS, and have numerous other knick-knacks lying around the apt. But if you were to ever ask me how many suns Tatooine had, I'd be stupified.

Could some science guy (P.M. Bryant, I'm looking at you, again) please tell me how this is possible?
