Ross 248 is also called Gl 905 and informally Proxima Andromedae. Nearby Red Dwarf flare star system dubbed HH Andromedae. There are indications of perterbations caused by an unseen companion, but searches for a brown dwarf star failed to find anything. It will become the nearest star to the sun in 33,000 years. Voyager 1 is heading in the direction of Ross 248 and is expected to be 1.76 light years from it in 40,176 years. It is currently very close to Groombridge 34, which is only 1.8 light years away, and could be visible from that star.
