  • We report the discovery of a bright (H = 12.77) brown dwarf designated SIMP J013656.5+093347. The discovery was made as part of a near-infrared proper-motion survey, SIMP (Sondage Infrarouge de Mouvement Propre), which uses proper motion and near-infrared/optical photometry to identify brown dwarf candidates. A low-resolution (λ/Δλ ~ 40) spectrum of this brown dwarf covering the 0.88-2.35 μm wavelength interval is presented. Analysis of the spectrum indicates a spectral type of T2.5 ± 0.5.
