    Stars emit light because nuclear fusion is going on in the core of the Sun. Planets don't have enough mass to generate the pressure and gravity required for nuclear fusion to initiate. Brown dwarf stars have enough mass to initiate nuclear fusion, but they don't have enough mass to maintain nuclear fusion long enough to move onto the Man Sequence.

    The stars emit light via similar gases composed of them similar to the Sun. Basically, they have similar composition to the Sun that allows them to emit light from their composition. They are made from plasma which contains chemical that causes them to fluoresce and/or release heat.
