Planets Dawning by University of California Davis

This infographic reflects our evolving awareness of space, showing discovery and exploration of planets in our solar system, and the recent accelerated pace of exoplanet discoveries driven by new techniques. The video shows planets viewable with the naked eye; then, we learn more about our neighboring planets, and that planets orbiting other suns exist. The video zooms out, becoming plot of the properties of confirmed exoplanets, colored by their temperature (yellow is warm, and potentially habitable).
