Teegarden’s star is an astronomical oddity, a main sequence star close to the Earth which was undiscovered until 2003. Yesterday a team looking for evidence of exoplanets around small stars revealed observations that suggest 2 planets near this small star. The periods suggest they could be similar to the mass of the Earth and orbiting in a region where the star’s light is just right to maintain liquid water.
