    Re: What is the name of the star that is nearer to the earth?

    So, here is your answer:
    The next closest known star to the Earth is Proxima Centauri, red dwarf star
    approximately 4.2 light years from Earth ... only about 278,000 times as far
    from us as the Sun is.

    The next two closest known stars comprise the binary star system called Alpha
    Centauri. Alpha Centauri is 4.4 light years from Earth.

    one more thing:
    It is postulated that another star, a red or brown dwarf star, closer to the Earth
    than Proxima Centauri, orbits the sun in a highly elliptical orbit. This possible
    star is code named Nemesis.

    hope that information will help you a lot..
    best of luck....

    hello sir......

    The sun, at a distance of about 92 million miles, is the closest star to Earth. After the sun, the closest stars are the members of the triple star system known as Alpha Centauri (Alpha Centauri A, Alpha Centauri B, and Alpha Centauri C, sometimes called Proxima Centauri). They are 4.3 light-years away
