Caption

Cataclysmic polar stars. Artwork of a white dwarf (blue) orbiting around a brown dwarf (red). The white dwarf's powerful magnetic field is pulling atmospheric matter away from the brown dwarf. The white dwarf's magnetic field is so strong that the extracted matter is not uniformly attracted to the star as with gravitational forces, but becomes caught up in the field and flows towards the white dwarf's magnetic poles.
