Summary:

The Rainbow Tautontis system is a binary system with an f-class and an m-class star.  The red m-class star orbits the other at an average distance of 40 au.  There are three planets orbiting the larger star and a narrow asteroid belt.  The system contains a hot Jupiter that migrated inward while the planets were forming.  The rainbow name comes from the primary planet whose usually bright aurora creates a rainbow effect in the planets atmosphere.

 

 

 

Rainbow Tautontis C

Planet C is a hot Jupiter located close to the star.  The planet migrated inward early in the system’s history causing the main asteroid belt to form just beyond the planet.  Dark sodium clouds sit lower in the atmosphere with white sulfur clouds sitting higher up giving large contrasts between light and dark colors.

 

 

 

 

 

Main Asteroid Belt

The main asteroid belt of the Rainbow Tautotis system stretches between 0.75 au to 2 au.  The belt contains twice as many asteroids than the belt in the sol system.

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Tautontis D

Planet D is an earth type world with a strong magnetic field.  The planets thick atmosphere and magnetic field creates a brightly covered aurora that can cover the entire sky with dancing colors.  When viewed from space at times the planet can look like a rainbow.  The planets continents are covered with green grasslands.

 

 

 

 

 

Rainbow Tautontis E

The last world in the system is a cold world lacking an atmosphere.  Planets D and E formed after planet c migrated inward.  There are no planets beyond E because of the second star obits in that area.
