And note this from the link provided by monmarfori:

"The masses listed in the table are inferred from theory, using difficult measurements of the stars’ temperatures and absolute brightnesses. All the listed masses are uncertain: both the theory and the measurements are pushing the limits of current knowledge and technology."

^ He's right, its the size of Saturn's orbit. Like 5-10 AU.

Depends how close "close" is.
Our atmosphere/magnetic field wouldn't hold off much radiation from that monster, so we'd die off pretty fast. :o

We'd probably shrivel up instantly because our bodies wouldn't be able to take the heat.
Fires would randomly break out all across earth,
All the water would evaporate and there'd be one thick blanket of cloud.
That's what I think would happen.
So lets be glad it's not closer.
