An interesting star of Teegarden.

Aries in the constellation, about 15 degrees southwest of the Pleiades (M45) dim, 15.1 magnitude, Star of Teegarden. That star caught the attention of Near-Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) researchers in 2003, with a specific motion of about 5 "/ year.

The star is only about 0.08x the mass of the Sun, with a rating of a red dwarf star. The distance to the star of Teegarden is about 12.5 light-years. In 2019, scientists have found evidence of stellar radial motion on two Earth-like exoplanets in the so-called zone of life.
