Upsilon Andromedae

While studying Upsilon Andromedae from the lick observatory in 1996, the planet hunter Debra Fischer found that it was being orbited by at least 3 planets, all gas giants. This was announced in 1998. This is the first multi planet system found other than our own Solar system.

Sometimes mis-spelled as Upsilon Andromidae.
