"The researchers estimated from their observations that there are nearly two rogue planets for every star in the Milky Way. Other estimations suggest a much larger number, up to 100,000 times more rogue planets than stars in the Milky Way. In November 2012 astronomers discovered a rogue planet around 100 light-years from Earth."  Rogue planet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ejected due to gravitational interactions with other planets in the system...these wandering planets are so dark and distant...galactic nomads - rogue planet

The Universe is amazing! Did you know this about Rogue planets?

rogue planet (also termed an interstellar planet, nomad planet, free-floating planet, orphan planet, wandering planet, starless planet, sunless planet, or Planemo) is a planetary-mass object that orbits the galaxy directly. Such objects have either been ejected from the planetary system in which they formed or have never been gravitationally bound to any star or brown dwarf.[1][2][3] The Milky Way alone may have billions of rogue planets.[4]

Astronomers found a low-mass exoplanet which is one of the biggest Jupiter-like planet in solar system.
