As of today, there are 369 known and cataloged extra-solar planets or "exoplanets".


I just can't get over the excitement of that. When I was young, there were endless articles about how incredibly difficult, if not impossible, it would to be detect extrasolar planets. I really never expected such a discovery in my lifetime.
