Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A white dwarf that has a companion imaged at 130arcseconds, or 2500 AU apart. This companion is about 6-9 Jupiter masses, making it either a large planet or small Y-class brown dwarf. The discoverers argue for the latter. The object must have a very cool surface though, perhaps 80 to 160F.
