Tiki versions are named after popular stars: While carrying no proper name, and not overwhelmingly obvious, Tau Ceti marks itself by its extreme closeness to the Sun. A mere 11.9 light years away, the star ranks either as the 29th closest to us (counting all the stars in a double or multiple system) or 19th (counting double or multiple systems as single units). Tau Ceti is a G8V spectral-class star, the same type as the Sun and as the Sun it doesn t have a known companion. If Tau Ceti had a planetary system some planets may had conditions favorable for life at a distance similar to the distance between the Sun and Venus. A start so similar to the Sun without a companion and very close to our system has alwasy intrigued and fascinated many astronomers. In the sky Tau Ceti is visible to the naked eye as a faint 5th magnitude star being the only start smaller than the Sun that can be seen without a telescope.
