XZ Tauri is a binary system approximately 450 light-years away in the constellation Taurus. The system is composed of two T Tauri stars orbiting each other about 6 billion kilometers apart (roughly the same distance as Pluto is from the Sun). The system made news in 2000 when a superflare was observed in the system.
