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.

Key:
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.
