EV Lacertae is a young red dwarf star about 16.48 light-years away in the constellation Lacerta. Although it can't be seen with the naked eye, it is the closest star in that region of the sky. Like Proxima Centauri, it can produce flares several times more powerful than those produced by our own Sun, for instance in April 2008, one such flare event is the largest known stellar flare ever recorded, which is thousands of times more powerful than the Carrington event from the Sun in 1859
