Closer in it gets hotter and brigher. Notice how the moon lights up the side of this planet.

|I would imagine a very short lifetime for this world. I wonder what any supernova would do to it? Melt the surface and maybe blast some molten crust off? |
After that it would resolidify and forever orbit any black hole that formed in bitter cold darkness.
