We present deep VLT/NACO infrared imaging and spectroscopic observations of the brown dwarf 2MASSWJ 1207334−393254, obtained during our on-going adaptive optics survey of southern young, nearby associations. This ∼25 MJup brown dwarf, located ∼70 pc from Earth, has been recently identified as a member of the TW Hydrae Association (age ∼ 8 Myr). Using adaptive optics infrared wavefront sensing to acquire sharp images of its circumstellar environment, we discovered a very faint and very red… Expand
