This image shows the location of six candidate planets believed to orbit the red dwarf star Gliese as of 2010. Blue indicates candidate planets in the habitable zone where conditions might be able to support life; orange indicates detections in the too-hot region that is too close to the star; green indicates detections in the too-cold region farther away from the star.
