Estimates of habitable zone migration and duration of exoplanet residency therein
This service provided by planetarybiology.com
Based on data feed from Exoplanets Encyclopaedia
Using methods from Astronomical Circumstances chapter
Note: habitable zone histories are estimated based on star mass.
Variations in spectral quality would result in variations in habitable zone migration
but are not accounted for here.

Sorted by rank(ASC)

Habitable Zone zones
Note: Stars get brighter and hotter as they get older.
As a result, the Habitable Zone migrates outward.
ZAMS = Zero Age Main Sequqence. MSE = Main Sequence End.
MinimumMaximumNoteworthy

Simple Ranking Criteria
  1. Star Distannce: closest = best
  2. Main Sequence Duration: longest = best
  3. Planet Mass: largest = best (for all gas giants; more promising hosts for large, rocky moons.)
  4. Offset of actual orbit from Orbit-of-Greatest-Opportunity: smallest = best
  5. Orbital eccentricity: smallest = best
  6. Planet's Residency in Habitable Zone: longest = best
