Yes and no. It's a neutron star, but since a pulsar is a kind of neutron star, I'll accept it. The neutron star is in front of the brown dwarf, its gravity distorting the light that comes from it, giving it this asymetric look.

Your turn.

Oh? Strange, that. This forum has a few strange bugs from time to time.

Oh well, in that case, who can tell me what's going on here?

Tidally locked oceania with a binary partner of the main star illuminating the frozen side. The planet is in the small magellanic cloud, you can see the LMC on the left and a nebula on the right.

Well, it's been two days now, so I guess DeathStar isn't going to post an image. So here's another one of mine.

Who can tell me what's going on here?

Hm... there's one incorrect thing there, or at least one thing you didn't make clear... tell me more about the orbits, please.

Gas giant with rings. On the left side is an orange dwarf, right side yellow dwarf. The gas giants orbit is not plane so the ring shadows are cast on different angles. Several moons including one that cast it's shadow on the left side.

Ah, but which star does this planet orbit? You can deduce that from the image.

I can also tell you one other thing you can't see from the image alone: the star in the right isn't one, but two -- a G and F close binary.

---------------------------------------------
No takers?

Well, then, I'll explain.

A K main sequence star is both less massive and (much) less luminous than a G or F star.. And, since there are far, far more stars in the main sequence than there are stars outside of it, one can safely assume that those are main sequence stars (and indeed they are).

Now, both sides of the planet are more or less equally lit. This can only happen if the K star is much closer to it than the G+F pair, and that in turn means that the planet has to orbit the K star.

So it doesn't "orbit yellow and orange stars", as spacer said, but only the orange member of the multiple system. And that's why I'm going to give it to Inspector_Gadget: he was closer to the right answer.

Your turn to post a pic.

If someone has gone this long without posting a picture, then you can post one smile Though I don't know how many people would still be interested in playing the game. But you could try.
