Proxima Centauri is the name of one of the three stars (!) that make up Alpha Centauri. Alpha Centauri consists of Alpha Centauri A and B, which are a close binary star system, and Alpha Centauri C, which is gravitationally bound to A and B. Alpha Centauri C is closest to Earth, at 4.24 light years, and is therefore often referred to as Proxima Centauri.
Wendelle Stevens mentions the case of 'Monsieur Y' who was contacted by inhabitants of a planet 'Baavi' which is in orbit around Centauri Proxima. In 1944-1945, he would have spent two months with them on their planet.
Joshua Stone tells the story of a German man, Horst Fenner, who claims that he had a UFO encounter, while travelling in the Amazon jungle in Bolivia in 1976. He was approached by two caucasian blond men who told him they were coming from a planet that circles Centauri Proxima.
