Pictures have been taken of planets outside of our little corner of the galaxy

Now, I know that this has absolutely nothing to do with SQL Server, and if you read slashdot this is probably going to be old news for you.

But apparently scientists have taken some pictures which show planets outside of the phones in our solar system.

Here’s a blog about it from BadAstronomy.

This article on Spiegel.de has some great images (it’s in German or Dutch or something) but they have an amazing overlay of images of one of the planets from a few years ago as well as the most recent position, including the track of the planet which I think is just an awsome image.  This have another planetary system graphic which shows the HR 8799 system compared to our system (the defination is in English on this one).

If you run across any other images feel free to post links to them below.

Here’s another pic of the planet which orbits Fomalhaut with it’s position from 2004 and 2006.

This is just amazing stuff that we are seeing today.
