Brown dwarf

By JustV23
My second attempt at portraying brown dwarf.
I just love these enigmatic bodies. They blur the line between stars and planets. Too massive to be a planet, yet too small to become a star.
Brown dwarfs emits very little visible light and heat. But in more extreme cases they can glow deep red.
This view represents a moon of a brown dwarf being lit up by the sun-like star, which is second component of this star-brown dwarf system.

Magnificent work. Reminds me of Vormir from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just a little brighter.

Idk why I didn't leave a comment when I first encountered this pic... This is one of my fav space pieces out there. The light and shadows on the terrain, the atmosphere and clouds in the distance, and everything about that brown dwarf <3 Very impressive!!

Nice concept and really good technique. Though, I'm not sure the reddish brands of light on it's "night side" would be visible from another planet with an earth-like atmosphere. I think the dominant light in this particular scene is too bright to allow such view of it's nigh side as most of the light from the brown dwarf would be in the infra-red spectrum. Though I don't know. It's pure speculation.

As I said, nice concept and amazing job. :)
