SETI public: Astronomers see reflected light from exoplanet



ASTRONOMERS SEE REFLECTED LIGHT FROM EXTRASOLAR PLANET
-------------------------

Until now, astronomers have detected planets around distant stars 
through a variety of indirect means, such as their gravitational 
impact around the star. But astronomers at the University of St. 
Andrews in Scotland believe they've seen the light reflecting from 
a planet around Tau Bootis.
