Alpha Centauri: The brightest star in the southern constellation of Centaurus. Although it appears to the unaided eye as a single object, Alpha Centauri is actually a binary star system (designated Alpha Centauri AB or α Cen AB) whose combined visual magnitude makes it the third-brightest single star in the night sky after Sirius and Canopus. The system also contains at least one planet, the Earth-sized Alpha Centauri Bb, which is the closest known exoplanet to Earth. It has a mass at least 113% of Earth's and orbits Alpha Centauri B with a period of 3.236 days. Orbiting at a distance of 6 million kilometers from the star, 4% of the distance of the Earth to the Sun and ten times closer than the orbit of Mercury, the planet has an estimated surface temperature of at least 1500 K (roughly 1200 �C), too hot to be habitable for humans.
