Stars dot our ever-expanding universe. While our nearest star is the sun we orbit in this small corner of the universe, we can observe to see neighboring stars living nearby.

The closest stars to Earth are three stars located about 4.37 light-years apart in the Alpha Centauri triple star system. The closest of these stars, Proxima Centauri, is only about 4.24 light-years away. (for reference, one light year is equivalent to 5.88 trillion miles (9.46 trillion km)).
