    Pale Red Dot - Proxima Centauri and its planets

    Proxima f'n Centauri. Our nearest stellar neighbor. Four light years distant.

    New data released yesterday from the Pale Red Dot observation campaign.

    https://reddots.space/proxima-centau...ata-release-1/

    What does it look like to you? Do you see a second planet in their observations?



    I see a second longer-period planet, and maybe a third as well. Note how the confirmed planet (Proxima b, blue line) is itself sinusoidal, but also seems to sit on top of a second sinusoidal wave of longer period. The period looks to my eyes to be ~110 Earth days.
