1 Schmeer, Patrick Gaia DR2 parallax 2.2185 0.0243 mas (distance 0.451 0.005 kpc)
2 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Aperiodic fading events. No YSO. No infrared excess. Possible explanations: collisions within an asteroid belt or unstable planetary system; dust that orbits within the Hill spheres of large planetesimals which may reside in an asteroid belt but are not required to collide or passage of a series of fragments from a broken-up comet (this one being the most likely). Rotation period 0.8797 d. (maximum amplitude 0.002 Kp). M2V star 1.95" away. If it is a physical companion, it is 885 AU apart. It could be affecting bodies in orbit around it via long term perturbations.
