Caption: Alien landscape. Artwork of a rocky landscape under a cloudy sky on an alien planet. The parent star is on the horizon at left, distorted by optical effects. Another planet or moon is seen 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. As of 2010, hundreds of planets have been detected around other stars.
