Caption: Proxima b. Animated view of the surface of Proxima b, a roughly Earth-sized rocky planet that orbits the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our Sun. The bright double star Alpha Centauri is seen in the sky to the upper right of Proxima Centauri as it sets on the horizon. The discovery of Proxima b was announced in August 2016. It orbits in the habitable zone around Proxima Centauri, where the temperature is suitable for liquid water to exist on its surface.
