  • We present the discovery of a very cold, very low mass, nearby brown dwarf using data from the NASA Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The object, WISE J064723.23–623235.5, has a very red WISE color of W1–W2 > 3.77 mag and a very red Spitzer Space Telescope color of ch1–ch2 = 2.82 ± 0.09 mag. In J_(MKO) –ch2 color (7.58 ± 0.27 mag) it is one of the two or three reddest brown dwarfs known. Our grism spectrum from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) confirms it to be the seventeenth Y dwarf… CONTINUE READING
