Well okay, if you want to see a star outside our solar system, go outside on a good clear night, look up and start counting
every star other than
the real big one that comes 'up' each morning is a star outside our solar system.
The article you referred to is talking about a large planet
(twice the size of Jupiter) orbiting a star
at a distance apx to 100 times
the distance we are from our star (the Sun).
It is interesting tho, to date the way they observe planets
outside our solar system is by observing the effect of that planet on the star
(slight wobble and or influence on the light from the star) - this appears to be an actual picture instead of observation.
So good find (should of read it first though
edit: A= star b= planet
