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

Sorry, but this is old news. The article is dated "01 April 2005".

Still, it is an important milestone and very cool that they were able to combine images from the VLT and Hubble and Subaru Telescopes to see the planet. I believe there are other photos of planets from the Spitzer Telescope but they are infrared. This photo was the first visible light photograph of a planet.
