Time Lapse of Asteroid Discovery

As scientists discover new asteroids, they add them to a map and highlight them white to indicate they are new ones. The final color of an asteroid indicates how closely it travels into the inner solar system: Earth Crossers are Red, Earth Approachers are Yellow, and all others are Green.

The time lapse covers the period from 1980 to 2010.
