Caption: Alien planet. Artwork of the view from orbit around an extrasolar planet or moon orbiting close to its parent star (upper right). Also seen is another planet or moon passing in front of (transiting) the parent star. One method of detecting such planets is by the decrease in the light from the star as the planet passes in front of it. Sunspots are also seen on the star. As of 2010, hundreds of planets have been detected around other stars.
