Image of Ran, or Epsilon Eridani

Among the dustlanes surrounding Ran lurks its companion Ægir, a gas giant planet 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.
