So I stumbled upon a bizarre star system catalogued in Space Engine... it probably is an error. Apparently there are two Y3.4 brown dwarfs and a planet. The primary star is unusually bright and the other with a strange, slanted aurora pattern.

It turns out that it's supposed to be a G6V yellow dwarf while there should be one planet, not two (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HD_92788). That means there is no brown dwarf.  :?

According to 'Exoplanet Encyclopaedia' there are two planets at 'HD 92788'. So I did not remove the second planet. If you want to remove it, you have to remove the two slashes before 'Remove' in the script.

cant post pictures here right now so just trust me (please tell me how)

RS 0-0-0-446-11131-8-14307391-337 B is a bright pink brown dwarf that bathes all of its orbiting planets in blinding pink light. No other brown dwarves in my game are like that, so I suspect its not just my game only and that others can visit it

For me, it's just a typical brown dwarf, nothing out of the ordinary. Also, you have to have posted 10 messages on this forum to be able to post images.

Wow, that's definitely a wicked looking brown dwarf! Some screenshots with clouds and water toggled on and off.
I think all my settings are set on fairly normal things, no mods either. I have a GeForceGT730 video card.

I did notice an interesting thing about it, a strange graphical glitch.
Whether I'm zoomed in or zoom is off, when I pull away from the planet, it gets bigger! When I approach it, it gets smaller!
I haven't had anything to drink either.

I think this red dwarf is a bit funky!

But also check the orbit on the inner most planet. So close that the apparent size of the sun in the sky is about 2.5 times the default POV lol

People, people - there is a simple explanation for this that doesn't defy science: that brown dwarf is from the '80s 8-).

Found a world where a storm is engulfing nearly a full half of the planet.

This is a normal tidal locked planet. Many of them look like this.

Increased galaxies magnitude to show nebula distribution in the Arp 148.

There are lots of nebulae here in the galaxy Arp 148. Usually most galaxies don't have this much nebulae, but it probably has something to do with the galaxy model or texture causing the generation of this much nebulae.

Ah great, more broken catalogued star systems. Apparently GQ Lupi and its planet are both Y-class brown dwarfs that look like glitched black holes. The size of the star appears to change in size when you move close to it... odd. I'm not sure if this also happens to other people though.
