Normally, people do not get the idea of the number of exoplanets (planets outside our solar system) that the Kepler spacecraft has discovered (more than 2,300 of which are in the habitable zone about 20). Neither is made to the idea of how many stars we have around us, that is why this video where we can see classified around 1700 (remember, many less than the ones found) classified by size and by type of orbit.

Obviously, it is not to scale, but it can give us a great idea of what we have around us, when we can go to other solar systems, that of fun and things to discover that we still have.

Also it’s an hypnotic video!
