This animation by the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center shows a beautiful view of the past 30 years of asteroid discoveries. As the years pass by, the numbers grow, and the patterns unfold.

New Discoveries are briefly highlighted in White
Earth Crossers are Red
Earth Approachers are Yellow
All Others are Green

From 8959 to 530091 in 30 years. Amazing.
