The star Gliese 667 is a triple-star system in the constellation of Scorpius. Gliese 667 C is the smallest stellar component of this system and its a red dwarf type star. The three exoplanets within the habitable zone of the star are called Gliese 667C c, f and e. It is 22 light years distance from Earth. The animation ( <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> ) in which I was surprise to find out is that the star is moving comparing to some DSS plates unfortunately no dates on them but last frame is my current image.
