(NASA/CNN) - Astronomers are sharing an exciting discovery made in deep space - several possible planets.
NASA says there at least 833 new "candidate" planets orbiting stars throughout the galaxy.
Of those, at least 10 are within their star's "habitable zone" - meaning they could have liquid water and potentially life.
The announcement came at the Kepler Science Conference, and uses data from the Kepler Space Telescope.
These newly-found planets are added to a list of more than 3,500 such worlds.
Scientists say their data shows most stars in our galaxy are orbited by at least one planet.
