New Rogue Planet Found Near Our Solar System

Amazing and inspiring.

Imagine what the aurora must look like from a planet such as SIMP? A planet where the Sun would be the size of a pin head as it looked towards our Solar System.

Between definitions, not quite a planet, not quite a failed star known as a brown dwarf.

It sits, in the dark, wondering where it belongs and how it fits in to the rest of the universe.

Do you think it drifts ever closer to our family, wanting desperately to be a part of our spinning neighborhood? Or do you think it is happy to be where it is, cautiously looking on, almost invisible, as it watches the rest of the planets plunder ungraciously around a spherical fireplace that wants nothing but to burn us all to dust?

Does it have machinations of being something more? What would we see upon it if we were to sit on its surface?
