Gliese 581 is an M-type red dwarf star 20.549 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Libra. It has had a complicated history, with up to 6 planets being proposed at one point, some of them described as potentially habitable. More recently, several studies have shown that the signals corresponding to the three outer planets are artifacts of stellar activity, and the current consensus is that the system has only three planets.

The three disproven planets in this system, with custom textures from an older addon, can be downloaded here.
