The orbit of an exoplanet around a star in a binary star system has been portrayed in three dimensions for the first time.

The planet orbits its star at a different angle to the plane of the orbit of the two stars, and the misalignment could offer clues as to how planets form in binary systems.

The exoplanet, GJ 896Ab (note the lower case b for the planet), was found in the binary system GJ 896AB (note the capital A and B for the two stars) that is located 20.3 light-years away from Earth.

The orbit of the planet is at an angle of 148 degrees to the orbital plane of the two stars.
