The Habitable Exoplanets Catalog

These are artistic representations of the top planets around other stars (exoplanets) with any potential to support liquid surface water. All of them are larger than Earth and we are not certain about their composition and habitability yet. We only know that they seem to have the right size and orbit to support surface liquid water.

They are ranked here from closest to farthest from Earth. This selection of objects of interest is subject to change as new interpretations or astronomical observations are made.
