A recent observational study suggests that the occurrence of hot Jupiters (Hjs) around solar type stars is correlated with stellar clustering. I present in this talk a new scenario for HJ formation, called "Flyby Induced High-e Migration", that may help explain this correlation. In this scenario, stellar flybys excite the ...
