There are now at least 23 radio sources in which apparent superluminal motion has been found. The effect is not limited to the “classic” examples like 3C 345, but is found in objects with a wide range of characteristic properties. We review the observations of the phenomenon and present an up-to-date list of the known superluminal sources.
