Close stellar encounters with the Sun from the first Gaia Data Release

  • Coryn A. L. Bailer-Jones (a1)


I present preliminary results of searching for close stellar encounters with the Sun using the first Gaia data release. Gl 710 is found to be a much closer encounter than found in pre-TGAS studies. More detailed results will be reported in an upcoming publication (Bailer-Jones 2017, in preparation).
