Research Consortium on Nearby Stars

The Research Consortium on Nearby Stars (RECONS) is a project to investigate the stars nearest to the Solar System - those within 100 parsecs (32.6 light years).

The project has discovered several nearby red dwarf and white dwarf stars, including GJ 1061 in 1997 which is the 20th nearest of known star systems at a distance of 11.9 light years.
