The Nearest Known Stars

Listed below are the 200 closest stars to the Sun which are bright enough to have had their distances listed in the Hipparcos, Tycho, Tycho-2, Gaia DR1 or Gaia DR2 catalogs.

Many of the Sun's closest neighbors are very faint dwarf stars which are very difficult to observe. As a result, the list below is likely to be incomplete, as many nearby stars are too faint to have been observed.

Show only stars brighter than magnitude
