Sunrise at Alpha Centauri by ChrisKlm Sunrise at Alpha Centauri by ChrisKlm
Sunrise on a hypothetical planet in the Alpha Centauri system. The planet orbits Alpha Centauri B, which is currently thought to be the most life-friendly of the two stars. Alpha Centauri A is seen as a small and distant light source in the background.

Alpha Centauri is regularly observed by planet hunters. The presence of Jupiter-like planets has already been excluded. Earth-sized worlds are technically extremely difficult to detect in the special setting of Alpha Centauri and are still a possibility.
