The Golden Stars are Pulsating Stars that have planets orbiting them.

HAT-P-2, is about 400 light years from Earth and is circled by a gas giant measuring eight times the mass of Jupiter — one of the most massive exoplanets known today. The planet, named HAT-P-2b, tracks its star in a highly eccentric orbit, flying extremely close to and around the star, then hurtling far out before eventually circling back around.

HAT-P-2 is the first time that astronomers have discovered a star pulsating in response to a planet orbiting it
