  • We present WISEA J114724.10−204021.3, a young, low-mass, high probability member of the TW Hya association. WISEA J114724.10−204021.3 was discovered based on its red AllWISE color (W1−W2 = 0.63 mag) and extremely red 2MASS J−K_S color (> 2.64 mag), the latter of which is confirmed with near-infrared photometry from the VISTA Hemisphere Survey (J−K_S = 2.57±0.03). Follow-up near-infrared spectroscopy shows a spectral type of L7 ± 1 as well as several spectroscopic indicators of youth. These… CONTINUE READING
