Astronomers in Washington DC have found the first ever evidence for water clouds beyond the solar system
The discovery was made on a 'failed star' 7.3 light-years from Earth
The object is a brown dwarf called WISE J0855-0714 that is up to 10 times the mass of Jupiter
It is also the first discovery of a 'partly cloudy' world like Earth
And it could help to find more Earth-like worlds in the future
