Barnard's Star

Barnard's Star is one of the 5 stars that form Poniatovski's Bull in the constellation of Ophiuchus. Together with A, B and C Centauri, and with Sirius, this Red Giant is one of the closest neighbours of our Sun. It is only 5,9 light years away, making it closer to us than Sirius is.
