As of 01 July 2018, a total of 3,797 confirmed exoplanets are listed in the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia, including a few that were confirmations of controversial finds. The majority of these planets were discovered by the Keplerspacecraft. In addition to the confirmed exoplanets, there are 4,496 potential exoplanets from its first mission, and 480 from its second mission.
The nearest known exoplanet is Alpha Centauri Bb.

In the Milky Way galaxy, it is expected that there are many billions of planets (at least one planet, on average) orbiting around each star, resulting in 100400 billion exoplanets, with many more free-floating planetary-mass bodies orbiting the galaxy directly.

Almost all of the planets detected so far are within the Milky Way; however, there have been a small number of possible detections of extragalactic planets.
