Ross 248 (HH Andromedae) is a small star about 10.30 light-years (3.16 parsecs) from Earth. It is in the direction of the northern constellation of Andromeda.[1] Despite its proximity to the Earth, this star is too dim to be seen with the naked eye.[2] Ross 248 was first catalogued by Frank Elmore Ross in 1926 with his second list of proper motion stars.[3]

The star is a UV Ceti-type variable star and a red dwarf
