Join the NASA Night Sky Network on Thursday, October 28 at 6:00pm Pacific Time (9:00pm Eastern) to hear Dr. Robert Zellem from NASA's JPL share how astronomers discover and characterize exoplanets.

What is an exoplanet?
An exoplanet is any planet beyond our solar system. Most orbit other stars, but free-floating exoplanets, called rogue planets, orbit the galactic center and are untethered to any star.

Most of the exoplanets discovered so far are in a relatively small region of our galaxy, the Milky Way. We know from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope that there are more planets than stars in the galaxy.
