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. Despite its proximity to the Earth, this star is too dim to be seen with the naked eye. Ross 248 was first catalogued by Frank Elmore Ross in 1926 with his second list of proper motion stars.
