Kind of a survey for everyone, which of the following pictures shows the best color scheme for a Brown Dwarf in your opinion?
Sort of a trick question, because the prime radiation coming off of brown dwarfs is infrared and I don't see a completely black option... Nonetheless, I still have to ask the question: what spectrum of brown dwarf are these supposed to be? L, T or Y? There would be some color difference between those types due to differing convection zones. Following the reasoning of Kenneth Brecher
and his work on perceived brown dwarf colors, I would have to say that H
is the most scientifically ACCURATE cloud scheme for a brown dwarf.
