How Can I Find New Planets?

If you've been watching the BBC's Stargazing Live you'll know the answer to this one.

Just go to the Planet Hunters website, let yourself be guided through a brief tutorial of what to do (it's easy- my cat could do it, and I haven't got a cat), and then start planet hunting!

Just in case there's any confusion, this is a real project using real data from real observations, and you can be a part of searching for new planets outside our solar system from the comfort of your own sofa, computer desk, bed or wherever else you sit and poke around on the internet.

I'm going to go and have a go now...
