Also known as "extrasolar planets", are planets outside our solar system, orbiting distant stars.  
To keep track of this fast-changing field, the Planetary Society presents this catalog of exoplanets. 

Here you will find a complete and up-to-date registry of known exoplanets (16.01.2012) and what is known about them.

By clicking on the name of any exoplanet you can view a dynamic animation of its orbit, along with more detailed information on its physical and orbital characteristics.
