Hi all, made an exoplanet visualizer!

I took the latest exoplanet data from NASA and extracted right ascension, declination, and distance (parsecs) and plotted spheres on those spots to get a rough idea of where planets (4352 of them as of 3/1/2021) have been observed outside our solar system. Easycam was used in openFrameworks to easily rotate and zoom the view.
