Achird Information:

Achird is considered to be a near-neighbor to our Solar System. Not only is it close, lying less than 20 light years away, but it is also a yellow dwarf, similar to our own sun. However, being faint to the eye and lying outside the traditional outline of the constellation Cassiopeia, it is often ignored.
