#1 Gliese 667C c (Exoplanet in the Constellation Scorpius)

#3 Kepler-22 b (Exoplanet in the Constellation Cygnus)
#4 Gliese 581 d (Exoplanet in the Constellation Libra)
Current Potential Habitable Worlds including both Confirmed and Unconfirmed Exoplanets
These images will be updated soon to include new objects and to separate confirmed and unconfirmed exoplanets for clarity. There are now 4 confirmed and 23 unconfirmed potential habitable exoplanets.
The following image shows a composition of all the current potential habitable exoplanets in the catalog including both confirmed and unconfirmed ones. The exoplanets are ranked by similarity to Earth from best to worst, #1 being the best candidate. The only two confirmed exoplanets in the data, HD 85512 b and Gliese 581 d, still rank very low as compared to the NASA Kepler candidates, that are waiting confirmation. All planets are shown to scale with Earth, Venus, Mars, and Mercury included for comparison (lower right). The visualization of each exoplanet was computer generated as our best interpretation of their possible appearance by the Scientific Exoplanets Renderer (SER).
