System has four stars and a planet-forming disk oriented vertically

A solar system has been identified with two sets of binary stars.

the two binary systems have stars that orbit their mutual centers of gravity at a distance about the same as the Earth’s distance from the Sun. The two binary systems are separated by about 54 times that distance, or about 1.8 times the Sun-Neptune distance.

If that weren’t enough, there is a ring orbiting on the polar axis that is primed to produce a planet

the material in the disk appears to have condensed into dust particles, a key early step that enables planet formation. So, at some point in the future, there may be planets orbiting the system graced with two suns and two very bright, very nearby stars.
