Welcome to the Exoplanetary Wiki mini wiki at Scratchpad!
You can use the box below to create new pages for this mini-wiki.
This mini-wiki is intended to collect all interesting facts about exoplanetary systems. Planetary System articles are not written in encyclopedic format, but rather in bullet form. Wikipedia or Skygazers should be used for encyclopedic articles. This can be considered a "scratch-pad" for exoplanetary systems information, just jot down notes as seen fit. Links to other sites, message board threads, and news articles are encouraged.
This wiki started out as a set of "System of the Day" posts at the bullitin board of the Extrasolar Visions web site. Concepts and terminology found in that web site are supported in this wiki. For Solar System bodies, please see the Solar System Scratchpad. Please see Exoplanetary Wiki Guidelines for standards on creating pages for this mini-wiki.
