Sigma Draconis planet. Computer artwork of a hypothetical planet orbiting the star Sigma Draconis (out of frame at top left). This star is an orange dwarf that lies just under 19 light years from Earth in the constellation Draco. This view includes Earth's Sun, seen as the faint star between the planet and the Large Magellanic Cloud (or LMC, grey, just left of the planet). The LMC is a satellite galaxy of our own Milky Way galaxy.
