Amazing image of Kepler’s candidate transiting planets

An amazing picture was published at the APOD today ! It shows all 1235 candidate planets discovered by Kepler in the same relative scale along with the Sun (top right … the lonely star) with the silhouettes of Earth and Jupiter. Somebody has to search deep in the high resolution image to spot the planets (all of them in … transit !).
