The closest star to the Sun is Proxima Centauri. In which direction we would need to look to see it in the night sky?

Great Bear
Sirius
Cassiopeia
it is not visible at all
Proxima Centauri is a red dwarf and its average brightness is very low. That is why even though it is closest to the Sun, it was discovered not until in 1915.
