Gliese 710 - Interesting Facts

One and a half million years, the Earth's inhabitants will be able to throw too-close look at one star. Sun-like dwarf Gliese 710 is currently 64 light-years away. The phrase "at the moment" as used here is not accidental. The fact is that even at the time of detection of this star in 1999, scientists found that at a speed of about 52 000 kilometers per hour, it moves straight to ... where? That's right, to visit us. Gliese 710 is an orange dwarf in the constellation Serpens. Star weighs 2 times less than the Sun, but the brighter it 30 times. It is moderately moving object, and therefore the approach to the ground hard enough to fix.
