Lalande 21185

A red dwarf with perhaps two planets, both gaseous giants, which are far away from the star. A third planet is suspected. The planets haven't been confirmed, their existence is doubtful.

Nearer to the star there would be room for rocky planets which could have temperatures suitable for life.
