A rogue planet with a mass more than 12 times that of Jupiter has been spotted hurtling through space.
This brownish celestial body is travelling through the galaxy completely alone around 20 light years from Earth and has an unusual aurora emanating from its pole.
The planet produces a magnetic field around 200 times greater than that of the largest planet in our Solar System.
It is the first object of its kind to be spotted using radio signals.
Scientists are unsure of its origin and what causes its mysterious aurora.
