Gliese 682 or GJ 682 is a red dwarf. It is listed as the 49th-nearest known star to the Sun, being about 16 light years away from the Earth. Even though it is close by, it is dim with a magnitude of 10.95 and thus requires a telescope to be seen. It is located in the constellation of Scorpius, near the bright star Theta Scorpii.[1] It has two candidate planets, one of which is in the habitable zone.[3][4]
