Abstract:     We live in an amazing age of astronomical discovery. After decades of searching for planets around other stars, we finally found some in the 1990s and over the last two decades discovered over 3000 planets around other stars. Join us as we look at these wonders, including some fascinating artwork speculating on what it would be like to stand on some of these worlds.

Telescope viewing after the show, weather permitting.
