Sunset on Gliese 667 Cc planet. Artwork of sunset over an alien landscape on the super-Earth planet Gliese 667 Cc. The brightest star in the sky is the red dwarf Gliese 667 C (upper left), which is part of a triple star system. The other two stars (Gliese 667 A and B) appear at upper right. Gliese 667 Cc takes 28 days to complete its orbit, at a distance from Gliese 667 C of around 18.5 million kilometres. Astronomers estimate that tens of billions of such rocky worlds, orbiting faint red dwarf stars, exist in the Milky Way. Gliese 667 C is 22 light years from Earth, in the constellation of Scorpius.
