Nearby red dwarf with a three transiting super Earths found by Kepler during its repurposed mission. The first two are scorching, but the third may be in the habitable zone. The closest transiting planets found that were luke-warm. The outermost is the nearest transiting potentially habitable planet. It is the smallest, yet most massive of the three (11.1 ME and 1.6 RE), classifying it as a Mega Earth.
