Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A Planemo orbiting a brown dwarf 172 ly away. The planemo is possibly the first "planet" imaged. A disk around the Brown Dwarf was known, but recently a disk around the Planemo was also detected. It is believed to be glowing hot from a recent collision with a Uranus sized planet. The planemo probably didn't form the way planets do, but rather, in the same manner as binary stars do.
