(nearby brown dwarf)

WISE 0855-0714 is a nearby brown dwarf (or sub-brown dwarf) discovered in 2013 within data from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Characteristics:

Given this determined temperature (lower than Earth's) and mass (below the range of brown dwarf), it is determined to be a planet-like object rather than a star, for which a number of terms are used (rogue planet, field planet, substellar object, sub-brown dwarf, planetary mass object or PMO).
