Alien landscape. Artwork of the surface of a planet orbiting a brown dwarf star (pink). A brown dwarf can be considered a cool star, or a large planet, that is insufficiently massive for nuclear reactions to be ignited. Instead, it would shine faintly, mostly by infrared radiation as it slowly collapses by gravitational contraction. It would be similar to Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, which also radiates in this way.
