A new tool from http://www.goldilocks.info/ allows users to view potentially habitable planets that have been found so far. This tool shows many different views of the planets, You can select the orbits, planets that are in the Goldilocks zone, similarity to Earth, a view of the entire sky and where the planets are, atmosphere composition, mass and temperature and more. It is one of the most interesting and interactive tools I have seen,

It is a fun way to look at the other planets we have discovered and see how they compare to Earth. It allows you to create your custom view to see the data in graphical form in an easily understandable way; Take a look and do some planet hunting.
