Alpha Centauri (also known as Rigel Kentaurus) is a binary star system located 4.37 light years from Earth.

The system consists of two stars, Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B. A third star, Proxima Centauri, is often considered to be in that system. If they are in the same system, then Alpha Centauri is the closest star system while Proxima is the closest star to Earth. It is unknown if the system has planets though if there were planets, they would be circumbinary planets.
