There are 1 Terran and 2 Super Terran planets within 0 to 10 Light Years that orbit in the potential liquid water zone of their star that might potentially harbor intelligent Alien life. These planets are Earth (Terran-Sized Planet), Proxima b (Super Terran-Sized Planet), and Ross 128 b (Super Terran-Sized Planet).

There is 1 notable planet within 0 to 10 Light Years that has been confirmed to harbor intelligent life. This planet is Earth.

Proxima b is a Cold Super Terran planet. Proxima b is bombarded with intense radiation from its star, Proxima Centauri. The prospects of life are slim on this planet.

Ross 128 b is a Warm Super Terran planet. It is possible that Ross 128 b has an ocean of liquid water and may support life. Is Ross 128 b home to an Alien race?

Planets have also been categorized according to their ESC, or Earth Similarity Class. Some scientists call this the Earth Simiarlity Index, or ESI. ESC is an indicator of how "Earth-like" a planet may be, based upon the following 20 criteria: whether a planet is in the habitable zone of their star (the area where liquid water could exist), if the planet is tidally locked (one side always faces its star), axial tilt, stabilizing moon, orbit eccentricity, size, mass, diameter, density, gravity, plate tectonics, atmosphere, atmosphere pressure, ozone layer, magnetic field, parent star solar flares, average temperature, greenohouse effects, stellar flux, liquid water, micro-organisms, land, plants, animals, and intelligent beings.

Planets outside of our solar system have ESC's calculated given the current data that is available. Their real ESC may rise or fall once complete data has been discovered. ESC will only be calculated for mainly potentially habitable rocky planets and not for Gas Giant planets. ESC does not nessarily indicate that a planet is "habitable" or can support life as we know it. ESC only gives us a general indication about how that planet compares to Earth given currently available data. Images that are displayed for planets are theoretical based upon the current available data. Images may be updated as new planetary data is discovered.

In addition, any planet that has a green background, is located within the potential liquid water zone of that star. The potential liquid water zone of a star is defined as the area around a star where liquid water could possibly reside on a planet, given that the planet has sufficient atmospheric pressure and a temperature that allows for liquid water. It does not indicate that a planet will be "habitable" just because it's located within that star's potential liquid water zone.

Also, any planet that has an orange background, is located in the potential liquid water zone, however, the planet is bombarded by strong solar flares from its parent star. Finally, any planet that has a red background, is located in the potential liquid water zone, however, the planet is bombarded by extreme solar flares from its parent star.
