To date (10th of July, 2007), 245 exoplanets have been discovered. The stars around which these planets orbit (host stars) are uniformly distributed in the sky (i.e. they are found in all the constellations).

On the sky map of exoplanets, the crosses indicate the exoplanet positions in the northern and the southern hemispheres. A mouse selection provides the name of the star, its distance from the Sun in parsecs, and the number of planets detected around it. Click on a star to simulate the planetary system in question, which will allow you to see the orbital parameters of the exoplanets.
