Impact parameter distribution of all confirmed transiting planets (blue histogram). The synthetic impact parameter distribution from our simulation (green histogram). The impact parameter distribution of Kepler planet candidates (KOI)(red histogram). The roughly estimated region of (nearly) grazing planets is shown in the region between the dashed and dotted lines.
