Such exoplanets can still only be seen as little more than pinpoints of light. Nonetheless, astronomers are now able to decipher some details of these distant worlds, such as the basic structures of their atmospheres. Instruments can now detect an exoplanet by recording the diminution of light as the body, residing in an edge-on orbit, passes either in front of or behind its host star.
