Distance chart for imaged exoplanets from host stars

This comparison chart shows the approximate distance in Astronomical Units (AUs, one of which is 149 598 000 km) of some planets in the Solar System from the Sun, as well as various candidate exoplanetary systems that have been imaged for now. For the bottom row showing planets around the Sun, the innermost is Jupiter, at about 5 AU, and the outermost at an average of about 30 AUs from the Sun is Neptune. The probable planet around Beta Pictoris is the closest to its host star of all exoplanets yet imaged, and is comparable to Saturn as far as its distance is concerned. A list of all candidate exoplanets directly imaged can be found at exoplanet.eu/catalog-imaging.php
