Astronomers have discovered a unique "brown dwarf" right in our solar neighborhood.

If your city were the galaxy, it would be like finding someone you didn't know about living upstairs in your house, one of the discoverers said.

The rare object is only 12.7 light years from Earth, circling a primary star that itself was discovered only recently in the southern hemisphere constellation Pavo (the Peacock).
