Our solar system has just the one star, but astronomers now have good reason to think a second star paid us a visit about 70,000 years ago. That’s when Scholz’s Star is believed to have skimmed the edge of our solar system on its way out to deep interstellar space. Scholz’s Star is a small red dwarf, but it may have passed so close by that our early human ancestors could have seen it when they looked up at the sky.
