An analysis of the emissions of this world found it contains hydrogen/oxygen water, which suggests its mass is in the range of planets rather than stars. The water found in the atmosphere, in the form of steam, means the object would have to be relatively cool.

The object is still contracting into its final form and so is very warm, some 1,830 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 Celsius).
