Various evidences point to the presence of clouds in ultra-cool atmospheres. An important ambiguity remains as to whether all variability in ultra-cool dwarfs is caused by patchy clouds, or other fenomena like magnetic activity and auroras. Simultaneous multi-wavelength photometric and/or spectroscopic monitoring could help to reveal this enigma.
