Second close binary star system found to have a terrestrial planet (2ME), and the first to be found with microlensing (3000 ly away). One of the first found orbiting a good distance (0.8 AU, Europa-like temperatures) away from a single star (0.13 MS) in a close binary (circumsecondary), and not both stars (circumbinary). Its discovery raises the possibility that many more such planets could be found. Planet is around a red dwarf, beyond its habitable zone. The primary star (10 to 14 AU) is also a red dwarf (0.15 MS).
