Gliese 179 is a 12th magnitude M-type main sequence star located approximately 40 light years away in the constellation Orion. This star is smaller, cooler, fainter, and less massive than our Sun. Also its metal content is twice as much as the Sun. In 2009, a gas giant planet was found in orbit around the star.
