  • The interplay of rotation and manifested magnetic activity on ultracool dwarfs (UCDs) is of key importance for gathering clues as to the operation of the dynamos within these objects. A number of magnetized UCDs host kG-strength magnetic fields. It was recently reported that the L8 dwarf WISEP J060738.65+242953.4 is a radio-emitting UCD that is likely observed pole-on, due to its lack of photometric variability and narrow spectral lines. Follow-up radio observations at Arecibo Observatory… CONTINUE READING
