so including sol , does this new information mean that we are in a trinary star system. the articles ive so far read do not make this clear.
The Toba supereruption was a supervolcanic eruption that occurred some time between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago at the site of present-day Lake Toba (Sumatra, Indonesia). It is one of the Earth's largest known eruptions. The Toba catastrophe hypothesis holds that this event caused a global volcanic winter of 6–10 years and possibly a 1,000-year-long cooling episode.

Uh huh... Velikovsky's Worlds In Collision ideas, again, might have been discounted too soon, too disdainfully.
Something ...or things... happened in this solar system to upset it.
Retrograde orbits, askew polar orientations ...Venus and Uranus... Triton's orbit... well, they were disturbed or captured from another system... heck, who knows, maybe the local galactic contractor had four too many beers during their lunch break.... OR another star system careened through and livened up the boring dance.
Now we have spotted a likely culprit for our vandalized solar system... though I doubt restitution can be made.
