Among the dustlanes surrounding Ran lurks its companion Ægir,
a faint star or possibly a brown dwarf,
as shown here.
An orange dwarf star
in the northern parts of Eridanus, the River.
Ran, perhaps better known by its Bayer designation of Epsilon Eridani, is a binary star, most noted for its
proximity to the Sun - it is just 11 light years away.
