12 of 34 Microlensing Exoplanets around our Galactic Center (GC) discovered until 2014 .GC is in Right Ascension=14h 45m 40.04s and Declination=-29d 00’ 28.1”. Microlensing exoplanet is a planet orbiting a star other than our own Sun that is detectable due to the effects that the gravitational field of its planetary system has on the passing light of a distant background star.

As seen on The Discovery Channel, THE NEW DETECTIVES takes you into the world of high-tech detection and crime solution, following the trail of clues along with renowned forensic experts and criminal investigators. These modern Sherlocks employ a variety of extraordinary techniques, using anthropology, physiology, chemistry, entomology, psychology and computer technology to solve today's crimes.
Illustration of gravitational lensing (not to scale). The light from the distant quasar is bent by the gravitational field of an intervening spiral galaxy placed fortuituously near the line of sight. The bending produces two artifact images of the quasar, which are observed by the eSMA. The spiral galaxy itself is located at large distances from the sun, corresponding to only 45% of the current age of the universe.
With its heart lying about 70 million light years distant, the Virgo Cluster is the nearest cluster of galaxies, contains over 2,000 galaxies, and has a noticeable gravitational pull on the galaxies of the Local Group of Galaxies surrounding our Milky Way Galaxy. - Image Credit: NASA/ESA/ESO/NAOJ/G.
