See 'Prospects for detecting the astrometric signature of Barnard's Star b' by Lev Tal-Or & co (submitted to A&A) via A bit technical, but punchline is : it will be hard enve with a perfectly working ! why? it is about the orbital inclination...

Barnard's Star b 16 Nov 18
We have been asked wether could detect using the astrometric method. Gaia is operating and producing data, so what can we expect? Our colleagues have been thinking about it for a while and have written a paper!

We created an 'official' account for Barnard's star b where you can follow the updates and new findings on this awesome planet. Even some expected skepticism about the detection after our colleagues review the huge amounts of data available ;)

In 10 000 years, Barnard’s star will be the nearest star to the Solar System! We believe it is a very old red dwarf, of about twice the age of the Sun. It seems rather quiet and inactive and it takes 140 days to make a full rotation. That’s almost 5 months!! 9/20
