Detailed Description

The Exoplanets plugin plots the position of stars with exoplanets. Exoplanets data is derived from The Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia. List of potential habitable exoplanets and data about them were taken from The Habitable Exoplanets Catalog by Planetary Habitability Laboratory.

Exoplanets Catalog

The exoplanets catalog is stored on the disk in JSON format, in a file named "exoplanets.json". A default copy is embedded in the plug-in at compile time. A working copy is kept in the user data directory.


The plug-ins' configuration data is stored in Stellarium's main configuration file (section [Exoplanets]).
