Star system features
g In 1.4 million years, Gliese 710 will pass our solar system at a distance of ~1.09 light years and will appear as bright and as red in the night sky as Betelgeuse. This will increase the number of comets in the night sky, but it’s unlikely, however, that this will lead to an extinction-level impact.
