Helios Is Ours

November 3rd, 2018

It is the closest one we have, but there are many, many more (almost countless) out there.

The sun’s closest stellar neighbors are three stars in the Alpha Centauri system. The two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, which form a binary pair. They are an average of 4.3 light-years from Earth. The third star is Proxima Centauri. It is about 4.22 light-years from Earth and is the closest star other than the sun. Ref.
