An international consortium of astronomers recently announced that a red dwarf star known as Scholz’s Star, and its brown dwarf companion, passed near Earth within the relatively close distance of 0.8 light years. about 5 trillion miles, skimming the outer edge of the outer Oort cloud.
Compare this distance to the current nearest star other than the Sun, Proxima Centauri, at 4.24 light years.
Fortunately, this event occurred roughly 70,000 years, before even our species of hominins, homo sapiens sapiens, took root and flourished.
