An Artist's conception of the brown dwarf ISO-Oph 102
Observations by the Submillimeter Array suggest that it is forming like a star, by accumulating material from the surrounding accretion disk (orange) shown here. The brown dwarf sheds angular momentum by ejecting material in two oppositely directed jets (red). Blue bow shocks indicate where those jets are interacting with the interstellar medium (Phan-Bao et al. 2008, ApJ, 689, L141) .
