If the planet Vulcan ever exist. It must orbit around the star called 41 Eridani. The 41 Eridani is about 16 light years away from earth. Since 41 Eridani is a triple star systems. The primary star is an orange main sequence star and secondary white dwalf and red dwalf star. The planet Vulcan should orbit around 41 Eridani's primary star that the distance closer than planet Venus from the sun. On planet Vulcan, the sky at night may appear one red and white star shines at night some period in season. The stars may appears like ruby with diamond shining in the night sky. If it is true that Vulcan ever orbit around 41 Eridani it will be a beautiful planet to live on or just visit it. The years around Vulcan will be shorter than earth years, because much closer distance to the primary star.
