An extrasolar planet, or exoplanet, is a planet outside the Solar System.
By far most detections are made by 'Radial Velocity' variations to the sun which is centric to that planetary-system.

The latest NASA Exoplanet Archive image shows a total of 778 such planets (in 624 planetary systems, including 105 multiple planetary systems) have been identified as of August 24, 2012.



Artist's impression. Hmmmm Planets .... Droool.
