The following web sites have been determined to be of some value to educators seeking additional information on astronomy and the space sciences. Some are publicly managed and some are privately managed. This list is by no means inclusive and new sites are added routinely. Clark Planetarium neither sponsors nor financially supports any of these sites, and is not responsible for their content.
- Extrasolar Planets Encyclopedia – Catalog of potential planets beyond our solar system
